Upcoming Commission: Computer Weekly – Cloud storage compliance

Please see below the outline for my next storage article for CW.

If you are interested in submitting ideas, case studies or interview suggestions, please do so by 1700 BST, Wednesday 2 May. As ever email is the best way!


Nearly all organisations make use of the cloud in some way. But what are the key compliance pitfalls to avoid with cloud in relation to data storage?

How do organisations ensure compliance in multi-cloud or hybrid cloud environments?

How do they handle changing regulatory frameworks, including – but by no means only – GDPR?

How do you truly know where data are, and how do you audit data across multiple locations?

Are there tools or best practices organisations can use, to improve compliance in complex cloud environments?

– there is scope within the article for case studies or interviews with end-user organisations that have tackled some of these issues.
