Cloud Computing Privacy Concerns

Cloud Computing offers a number of significant advantages compared to the normal computing model However, the cloud environment has been criticized by privacy advocates for the greater ease in which the companies hosting the cloud services control, thus, can monitor at will, lawfully or unlawfully, the communication and data stored between the user and the host company.

There are also concerns related to the operation of cloud data centers, which fall outside the normal operating procedures of most corporations, and thus are not necessarily to the same standard as corporate data centers.

While there have been efforts (such as US-EU Safe Harbor) to "harmonize" the legal environment, providers such as Amazon still cater to major markets (typically the United States and the European Union) by deploying local infrastructure and allowing customers to select "availability zones."
"An amazing service, helped us understand and engage with our regulatory problems." - Jason M., IT Security Manager
