IEEE Cloud Computing: Legal Clouds By @Kevin_Jackson | @CloudExpo #Cloud

Cloud computing has the potential to play a major part in improving government service delivery

The new issue of IEEE Cloud Computing is now available!

This special issue looks at how to balance

privacy with legitimate surveillance and lawful data access. Some of the specific areas covered are:

  • Balancing Privacy and Surveillance in the Cloud;
  • Data Flow Management and Compliance in Cloud Computing;
  • Anonymous Credential-Based Access Control Scheme for Clouds; and
  • End-to-End Privacy for Open Big Data Markets.

This issue also features articles on cloud forensics and the strategic value of cloud.

I am also very proud to present my debut article for IEEE; "IEEE GovCloud: Making a Difference for Global Governments":

On February 8, 2011, then United States CIO Vivek Kundra released the US Federal Cloud Computing Strategy[1]. In the executive summary he laid out the inefficient state of affairs that was the US Federal Government's IT environment:

The Federal Government's current Information Technology (IT) environment is characterized by low asset utilization, a fragmented demand for resources, duplicative systems, environments which are difficult to manage, and long procurement lead times. These inefficiencies negatively impact the Federal Government's ability to serve the American public.

Cloud computing has the potential to play a major part in addressing these inefficiencies and improving government service delivery. The cloud computing model can significantly help agencies grappling with the need to provide highly reliable, innovative services quickly despite resource constraints."

These words heralded the start of the US Federal Government's Cloud First policy. It also turned out to be the start of a global trend towards the adoption of cloud computing services by governments around the world...."
