This is at least what Dr. Thilo Weichert argues. He is the head of the Independent Center for Privacy Protection of the State of Schleswig-Holstein (Unabhängiges Landeszentrum für Datenschutz Schleswig-Holstein, or “ULD”), and one of Germany’s top privacy experts. In aJune 18, 2010 opinion, he wrote on the subject of cloud computing.
“The main issue in cloud computing rests with the integrity and the confidentiality of the data stored in the cloud.
He goes on by pointing out that
“A central aspect of every cloud service contract is the security of data processing. In order to eliminate data security breaches, one must maintain the system and take steps to troubleshoot it. It is thus important, if only for liability reasons, that responsibility for specific security measures be clearly assigned. This can be done by using Security Service Level Agreements (“SSLA”) between the Cloud service provider and its client. SSLAs frequently have the character of general business conditions.”
