Government of Canada Privacy Commissioner Fact Sheet On Cloud Computing

Data Privacy and Security In The CloudWhile reviewing material on the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) and it’s implications for British Columbia based companies considering cloud computing options, I came across a fact sheet issued by the Privacy Commissioner of Canada:

The fact sheet provides an overview of what cloud computing is, provides some insights into why cloud computing is being adopted by many businesses, and discusses some privacy concerns you need to understand when making a move to the cloud.

While not an exhaustive resource, it does provide some good information. Hope you find it useful :)
