SUMMARY

❖ Like any other outsourced information management service, cloud computing also gives rise

to privacy concerns among its consumers.

❖ Information security and privacy are two different issues. Security does not ensure privacy.

❖ Privacy gets affected when the identity of someone gets revealed to others without his or

her permission. The kind of information which can be disclosed is known as personally

identifiable information or PII.

❖ To protect privacy of consumers and their business, cloud vendors should ensure that

personally-identifiable information is not being shared with others. Every service provider

generally maintains some documented privacy policy of its own.

❖ The inequality in privacy protection laws among different countries or regions make it

challenging for cloud service providers and consumers to maintain the privacy.

❖ Compliance of all kinds of business, performance and legal requirements become important

issues for cloud service providers. Among these, complying with all legal constraints is

another challenge as data in cloud is stored at different locations around the world. These

regions have their own separate regulations which are often in conflict with each other.

❖ All of the cloud service providers must define their principles with respect to Governance,

Risk management and Compliance issues. Together, these three are called as GRC.

❖ Periodical auditing and constant monitoring are important in cloud to ensure compliance,

performance and security of the system.
