Protecting Personal data in the cloud with ISO 27018


A Roadmap for Cloud Service Providers and Customers

Protecting Personal data in the cloud with ISO 27018

The rapid expansion of cloud services clearly points to the convenience of these services in the market. We have gone from CIO’s and CTO’s not wanting to let go of control of their data only a few years ago, to now being unable to ignore the efficiencies of `the Cloud’.

For many companies, and consumers, there is still nervousness and suspicion, driven by a gap in confidence with regards to information security for Personally Identifiable Information (PII). The issue is significant for cloud services providers as well as their customers both within the US and internationally, as demonstrated by the recent invalidation of the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework, its possible replacement by the U.S.-EU Privacy Shield program (still being finalized) and the EU General Data Protection Regulation.

 Attendees of this free webinar will:

  •  Learn about the ISO 27018 requirements and implementing in their organization
  • Understand chain of custody around PII between data controllers and processors
  • Learn about the changing EU data protection regulation landscape

Philip Gordon, Co-Chair, Privacy and Background Checks Practice Group from the law firm, Littler Mendelson will discuss the changing regulatory landscape in the European Union. He will explain the current state of the proposed Privacy Shield and describe key aspects of the the EU General Data Protection Regulation with an impact on cloud service providers and other businesses. He will provide recommendations for next steps in light of these developments.

Michael Fuller, Director of Coalfire ISO, will cover the ISO 27018 requirements for cloud service providers, ISO 27001 as a foundational framework, how other organizations can leverage the standard and discuss the changing data protection landscape between the European Union and U.S. ISO 27018 is the code of practice for protection of personally identifiable information (PII) in public clouds acting as PII processors.
