Cloud Computing Regulation: An Attempt to Protect Personal Data Transmission to Cross-Border Cloud Computing Storage Services

Abdallah AbuOliem
Abstract—Cloud computing has become popular for its users who need low-cost and large scale computing. Lately, international and regional organizations as well as governments have begun to understand the legal impact of cross border cloud computing storage service on individuals’ personal data. To meet the need of personal data protection regulations, this study discusses the significance of personal data protection. In addition, personal data protection in the current use of a specific storage characteristic in cross border cloud computing. The threats associated with the cross border transmission of personal data. This study describes the level of understanding the risk of business departments and governments’ agencies that implement this technology. Furthermore, this study examines the variety of alternative jurisdictions existing around the world. Based on an examination of these jurisdictions and the benefits that accrue through the adoption of regulatory framework, this study argues that defined elements for protection of personal data transmitted to cross border cloud computing technology are an essential part of any future attempt to cloud computing regulation.

Index Terms—Cloud computing regulation, cross border cloud computing risk, personal data transmission, cloud practice, personal data protection.
