  • The regulatory requirements of processing “personal data” in the cloud
  • The security of personal and other types of data
  • The protection of data processed in the cloud from seizure or any other kind of access by third country law enforcement agencies

Also discussed is the ongoing “encryption or tokenization” debate, how each relates to recent European data protection guidelines, and whether either can actually (and legally) constitute anonymization of the data.

The second part of the paper looks at encryption and tokenization techniques and how they offer significant benefits for achieving legal compliance for data protection, as well as for safeguarding the security of the data.
