White paper compares government access to cloud data in ten jurisdictions
In the last week, law firm Hogan Lovells released a very interesting white paper on government access to cloud data across ten jurisdictions, mainly focused on debunking many of the myths associated with the USA Patriot Act. The white paper was released in association with a Round Table on Government Access to Data with European policy makers at the Openforum Academy.
