Naomi Moneypenny on Cloud Privacy and the LEADS Act

Naomi Moneypenny, CTO of ManyWorlds and Voices for Innovation community leader, discusses how her small technology company can serve enterprise customers around the world because of cloud computing.

But the benefits of the cloud are now under threat because of outdated policies governing data privacy and access. As Naomi notes, the Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA) dates back to 1986 – essentially, pre-Internet days. ECPA does not reflect today’s digital world, where even small businesses work with customers, partners, and vendors around the globe.

We need to update U.S. law to protect privacy and make law enforcement more effective in today’s digital world. Naomi encourages viewers to support the Law Enforcement Access to Data Stored Abroad Act (the LEADS Act) and to make their views heard by participating in Voices for Innovation.
