I’m working with HP Labs at present on cloud stewardship. It is a great project. Economists, professors, industry stakeholders, UK Technology Strategy Board,  HP, IISP. Here we’ve had some great discussions, and my work in understanding the relationship between information security and key national policies, such as our economic, social, crime and national security, has made a difference.

I’m involved in understanding the information security and resilience risks within cloud environments and within a broader cloud computing market. But my legal experience and skills have enabled me to contribute a new angle to the project. Understanding the jurisidicational environment within which cloud service providers currently operate within, and how this environment may need to be changed to help the industry prosper and protect the customer.

This article highlights work being done by HP with regards cloud computing.
