EU set to ban US run cloud services
Recent press has suggested that we may be on the brink of a European wide ban of US run cloud services.  Due to America's intentions to apply its Patriot Act to all cloud services, confusion has arisen as to what impact this would have on European data protection laws.One of the possible outcomes would be American companies effectively owning the data once it crosses the Antlantic, which would make it particularly challenging for organisations to then claw back that data in difficult circumstances. For some organisations, it would create multiple compliance issues around their data security.Due to this, the European Parliament's civil liberties committee are considering an outright ban of US companies delivering cloud services to EU organisations.Organisations who require a bit more clarity of where their data will be stored and who will be responsible for managing their data should consider Redstor's Online Backup service. This will securely perform server backups , ensuring your backup is encrypted and off-site. You can also recover your encrypted data safely from the cloud without fear of compromising any data protection laws or America's Patriot Act.If you're interested in finding out more about Redstor's cloud services then feel free to e-mail Redstor.
