About SafeCloud.org

SafeCloud.org’s mission is to promote safe, secure and compliant cloud computing for all participants in the global economy, including both governments and enterprises. As a non-profit organization, we sponsor original research and expert commentary on issues of interest to cloud service users, their legal and compliance teams and outside counsel, as well as to government officials and regulators.

Our particular focus is on legal and regulatory compliance, online privacy, online security, data protection law, transparency about government access and data sovereignty.

In support of our mission, we are grateful to Microsoft for a sponsorship grant. Funds from the grant will be used to develop and publish original research and expert commentary on the challenges that face organizations seeking to deploy cloud computing while respecting the privacy rights of individuals and complying with the complex data protection laws and regulations of the United States, the European Union, and other nations and regions around the world.
