Privacy in cloud computing

Privacy concerns are increasingly important in the online world. Adoption of privacy-enabling technologies to support the secure processing of personal data in the cloud will depend upon the existence of uniform ways of handling personal data at the international level and on technical standards which can help demonstrate compliance with legal and regulatory frameworks.

This ITU-T Technology Watch Report analyses the challenges posed by cloud computing and the standardization work undertaken by various standards development organizations in the field.
