Follow best practices while contracting cloud services, warns lawyer

Enterprises need to assess the risks of cloud computing and have clarity on data protection and security responsibilities when contracting cloud services to avoid another “2e2 disaster”, a cloud lawyer has said.

Cloud is not a magical solution that will fix all of IT’s problems and customers must understand that the service they get depends on what they pay for, Frank Jennings, cloud lawyer at DMH Stallard told Computer Weekly at the annual Cloud World Forum 2013 event.

“If you are a big blue chip company paying more for the cloud service, you may get a higher level of protection, but if you are a small enterprise, your contract doesn’t provide enough value to the cloud service provider,” Jennings said.
