Der Band dokumentiert die Ergebnisse und Empfehlungen einer Analyse zur Frage, wie sich IT-Gesetze entwickeln sollten, unter der Prämisse, dass die heutige und zukünftige Informations- und Kommunikationstechnologie durch Cloud Computing geprägt ist. Insbesondere entwickelt sich diese Untersuchung auf einer vergleichenden und einer interdisziplinären Achse, d.h. als Rechtsvergleich zwischen EU und US-Recht und interdisziplinär zwischen Recht und IT. Die Arbeit konzentriert sich auf den Schwerpunkt vom Datenschutz und Datensicherheit in Cloud-Umgebungen und analysiert drei Hauptherausforderungen auf dem Weg zu einer effizienteren Cloud-Computing-Regulierung: Verständnis der Gründe für die Entwicklung divergierender Rechtsordnungen und Denkschulen zum IT-Recht Gewährleistung der Privatsphäre und Datenschutz in der Cloud konvergierende Regulierungsansätze für die Cloud in der Hoffnung auf eine harmonisierte Landschaft von IT-Gesetzen in der Zukunft.

Countries are increasingly introducing data localization laws, threatening digital globalization and inhibiting cloud computing adoption despite its acknowledged benefits. This multi-disciplinary book analyzes the EU restriction (including the Privacy Shield and General Data Protection Regulation) through a cloud computing lens, covering historical objectives and practical problems, showing why the focus should move from physical data location to effective jurisdiction over those controlling access to intelligible data, and control of access to data through security.

This monograph examines how European Union law and regulation address concentrations of private economic power which impede free information flows on the Internet to the detriment of Internet users' autonomy. In particular, competition law, sector specific regulation (if it exists), data protection and human rights law are considered and assessed to the extent they can tackle such concentrations of power for the benefit of users. Using a series of illustrative case studies, of Internet provision, search, mobile devices and app stores, and the cloud, the work demonstrates the gaps that currently exist in EU law and regulation. It is argued that these gaps exist due, in part, to current overarching trends guiding the regulation of economic power, namely neoliberalism, by which only the situation of market failure can invite ex ante rules, buoyed by the lobbying of regulators and legislators by those in possession of such economic power to achieve outcomes which favour their businesses. Given this systemic, and extra-legal, nature of the reasons as to why the gaps exist, solutions from outside the system are proposed at the end of each case study. This study will appeal to EU competition lawyers and media lawyers.

Cloud Computing and Electronic Discovery offers an accessible resource that explores cloud computing technology’s impact on electronic discovery approaches in litigation and criminal investigations. The key issue from a legal perspective is that an investigator or litigant cannot simply access the data that is held by a third party in the cloud. Written by James P. Martin and Harry Cendrowski—experts in this emerging field—the book delves into this fascinating and rapidly-developing area of law to better prepare fraud investigators, legal professionals, forensic accountants, and executives with an understanding of the ramifications of storing data with third-party providers and how such storage mechanisms relate to the limits of discovery practices. In non-technical language, the authors reveal how data is stored and (at a high level) the technical aspects of hosted solutions that can affect production of data. As the authors explain, discovery of data within a cloud computing solution falls under the restrictions of the Electronic Communications Privacy Act of 1986. Today, judges use this law to rule on cases involving data created and stored by devices that would have been considered as science fiction in the almost thirty years since the law was first written. The book also explores in detail the Stored Communications Act (which falls within the Electronic Communications Privacy Act) as well as the prior laws that protected technological communications of a bygone era. Throughout the book, Martin and Cendrowski offer insights into legal concepts that shape current cases and the common themes of privacy issues. They also describe the limitations of the current laws in interpreting modern systems and devices. In addition, the book surveys many of the precedent-setting cases that involved interpretation of hosted data and access of that data by litigants or the government. Based on current trends and recent court cases, the book includes practical guidance on how to consider the availability of cloud data relevant to an investigation and how to include this data in discovery plans. The companion website includes the most recent updates to the laws covering cloud computing and electronic discovery. For business, accounting, and legal professionals, Cloud Computing and Electronic Discovery is an invaluable resource for understanding the evolution of cloud eDiscovery policies, practices, and law as they continue to unfold and develop.

Dieses Buch beschreibt die Anforderungen an das Identitätsmanagement im Cloud Computing aus rechtlicher und ökonomischer Sicht. Cloud Computing entwickelt sich zu einer Basistechnologie der digitalen Gesellschaft. Entsprechend wichtig ist es, den Zugriff Unbefugter auf Cloud-Dienste abzuwehren. Schlüsselfaktoren sind hier das Identitätsmanagement sowie die Abwehr von Identitätsdiebstahl und Identitätsmissbrauch. Das Werk stellt den rechtlichen Rahmen des Identitätsmanagements im Cloud Computing inklusive des IT-Sicherheitsgesetzes dar und entwickelt aus ökonomischer Perspektive quantitative Modelle technischer Angriffsszenarien und Abwehrmaßnahmen für typische Nutzungsformen von Cloud-Anwendungen. Unter Berücksichtigung der rechtlichen und ökonomischen Rahmenbedingungen werden sodann konkrete rechtliche Pflichten zur Vornahme bestimmter Schutzmaßnahmen identifiziert und somit die rechtlichen Anforderungen des Identitätsmanagements praxisgerecht konkretisiert.

Cloud Computing hat in der modernen IT-Landschaft besonders weitläufige Verbreitung gefunden – zugleich ist die besonders praxisrelevante Fragestellung, wer im Falle von Datenverlust haftet, wissenschaftlich bisher noch weitestgehend ungeklärt. Die vorliegende Arbeit untersucht die unterschiedlichen hierfür maßgeblichen Rechtsfragen von der Anwendbarkeit des maßgeblichen Zivilrechts bis hin zum Nachweis der Haftungsvoraussetzungen durch den Geschädigten. Dabei wird nicht nur die vertragliche Haftung des Cloud Providers, sondern auch die deliktische Haftung des externen Hackers für unbefugte Datenlöschung untersucht. Besondere Bedeutung kommt schließlich der Frage zu, der Verlust welcher Datensätze überhaupt einen Schadenseintritt begründen und wie dessen Höhe in diesem Fall rechtssicher quantifiziert werden kann.
