Over use of cloud services by public sector to be probed by EU

European privacy watchdog said on Tuesday it will launch joint investigations with 22 national regulators into the use of cloud-based services by the public sector to check if they comply with its privacy safeguards.

The investigations will cover over 80 public bodies across the European Economic Area, including EU institutions, covering sectors such as health, finance, tax, education and providers of IT services), The European Data Protection Board (EDPB) said.

U.S. cloud computing companies such as Amazon’s AWS, Alphabet’s Google, Oracle and Microsoft’s Azure have been building data centres across Europe in response to growing demand from private- and public-sector organizations. US News
