How you can get involved in rebuilding trust in the cloud
Cloud computing promises to transform the way we work and play, through increased computing power, scalable and always-on availability, enhanced security, and new and innovative services. But this promise will be realized only if all of us work together to enhance and ensure trust in the cloud. After all, people won’t use technology they don’t trust, a point emphasized by many trade associations, publications, and commentators.
Governments around the world, through the policies they adopt, have a key role to play in enhancing user trust. In a global world, governments can help improve trust by setting clear rules of the road on access to cloud content. As the New York Times noted with respect to the U.S., “Privacy protections clearly need to apply even in the age of cloud computing. That is why Congress must make sure that the law keeps up with the times.” The same is true of countries around the world. Please join us, along with others like the National Association of Manufacturers, IBM, Apple, Amazon, CNN and Fox News, in calling for government reform in this area. If you live in the U.S., please use our tool below to send a letter to your Congressperson and Senators asking them to co-sponsor and support the LEADS Act. And for those in other countries, please download a letter asking your government to support the Reform Government Surveillance principles.
