Data Protection
As  the debate over data protection and governance is high on the international technology agenda, CloudscapeVII digs deep into the various facets of this major issue, such as law enforcement access to data with a session including legal, government & industry experts offering insights about how data stored in data centres, in different countries might be accessed by law enforcement authorities. The multijurisdictional dimension of cloud computing presents a number of legal challenges – what possible approaches can we take to re-assure businesses? 

The panel will include Ian Walden, Solicitor of the Senior Courts of England and Wales & Professor of Information and Communications Law, Queen Mary University of London, Corinna Schulze, Director, EU Government Relations, Global Corporate Affairs and Deputy Head of EU Representation Office, SAP and Michael Olmsted, Senior Counsel for the European Union and International Criminal Matters for the Department of Justice, U.S. Mission to the European Union. 

Mark Lange
, Director, EU Institutional Relations, Microsoft, notes that “Existing laws impact borderless technology. It is a key challenge we grapple with in the digital era: adapting laws of the past to keep pace with technological change, while respecting national sovereignty and the rule of law to serve the safety, privacy, and economic advancement of our societies.”
