EU - Cloud computing and data protection

Speech by Neelie Kroes, European Commission Vice-President for the Digital Agenda, Les Assises du Numérique conference, Université Paris-Dauphine, 25 November 2010. As summarised on Neelie Kroes' Twitter feed: Clear and robust data protection is a "must have" feature for cloud services. We we all deserve 2 things: 1) cloud suppliers protect personal data efficiently and transparently and 2) countries hosting cloud servers must have laws guaranteeing data protection with any limited security exceptions governed by rule of law.
