Cloud computing services could be subject to extra data protection checks in Europe

InfoWorld - Cloud providers seeking business from EU institutions could become subject to more scrutiny from the EDPS (European Data Protection Supervisor).

The supervisor is preparing guidance on the use of cloud computing and mobile devices for data transfers by EU institutions to non-EU countries and international organizations.

Part of that guidance could require extra checks for personal data shared with cloud computing services, the supervisor said in a position paper published Monday.
