August 6, 2013 — / — The ongoing disclosure of the extent of the PRISM program has raised major privacy and confidentiality concerns for customers of cloud-based services. A recent CSA survey of 500 respondents found that 56% of non-US residents were less likely to use US-based cloud providers, in light of recent revelations about government access to customer information. Companies have fiduciary obligations and other requirements to keep corporate data not only secure, but also private and confidential.

In light of ongoing revelations, should companies be concerned about going to the cloud? What can companies and individuals do to preserve the confidentiality and privacy of their data? Do the revelations raise the risk that new data residency requirements will restrict the use of cloud-based services? We will be hosting a CSA CloudBytes Town Hall to address these and more questions.

On Monday, August 12th at 8:00am (PDT), you are invited to attend a CSA CloudBytes Town Hall on:
