Whether as vendors or as consumers of cloud-based services, many businesses assume that other participants in the process are taking the necessary steps to ensure data security and otherwise address the many potential legal issues. Although it is widespread, that assumption can be dangerous if it leads businesses not to take adequate steps to protect themselves and their customers and clients.
We provide legal services against/for copyright infringement, data breaches, security and privacy violations, hacking, cybersecurity and many other complex issues that can lead to complex litigation and regulatory matters before courts.
The majority of companies which implement cloud solutions and services do not have security procedures in place and they also lack measures to approve or evaluate cloud applications.
Security of information is another important consideration. ISO 27001 is a standard that details requirements for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining and improving an information security management system. It acts to formalize specific criteria for a range of IT security-related processes, including: information classification and handling; third-party access; incident management and communication; disposal of media; hiring, discipline and termination of staff; acceptable use of computer equipment; development processes; release and change management; and data access, availability and integrity.
