Thursday 5 December 2019
In its 2019/2020 white paper, Hexatrust returns to the Cloud Act with a publication entitled "CLOUD ACT: A CLARIFICATION FOR ALL" (white paper available in French). A detailed analysis of about twenty pages on this piece of legislation that took the entire digital community by surprise ...

Extract :

CLOUD for Clarifying Lawful Overseas Use of Data, which can be translated by law to clarify the legal use of data outside the United States.

CLOUD is also this technology made up of various outsourced IT services. The cloud is Hexatrust's second leg with cybersecurity, its first.

Also, in view of this law, which legalizes a kind of US public-private partnership between US public authorities and American digital companies, it seemed to us necessary to bring our own understanding of the text, because this one may have effects up to Europe and France.

First of all, because many European companies entrust their data to an American service provider, particularly in the context of cloud computing services.

Then, because on the occasion of the surprise release of this law, a few weeks before the entry into force of the RGPD 1 on May 25, 2018, few were the comments on the CLOUD ACT in France. Worse still, some of these comments meant to explain this text of the law, did not say the whole reality of the text. However, the association Hexatrust has always been this place where speech could freely expose itself, to carry our values ​​and ambitions of a European digital autonomy.
