While cloud computing is revolutionary in the legal context, it does have a potential impact on legal risk. Once the data is on the web, where does it reside? Electronically stored information on the cloud is subject to different protections than information stored in-house. Warranties are given by the customer instead of by the service provider for privacy and data security. If your library chooses a cloud solution, which regulations do you need to be familiar with to protect client/patron data? Identify key factors to discuss and negotiate with service providers before giving assent to their Service Level Agreements (SLAs).
