Are your company's data security and integrity affected by the CLOUD Act?
GDPR and the CLOUD Act
This year, two important privacy and security legislations were passed on each side of the Atlantic. European organizations were so busy taking action to comply with GDPR within the deadline that they might have missed out on the compliance threats imposed on European companies by the US CLOUD Act.
The CLOUD Act means that US law enforcement can demand access to data and emails, if stored by a US corporation. Regardless of where in the world the data is stored. This is a threat on European organisations using American board portals, as compliance with both EU’s GDPR and the US CLOUD Act is not possible.
