ONLINE PRIVACYFebruary 19, 2010
Despite its increasing popularity, cloud computing continues to raise data privacy concerns, reports CityNews. Earlier this month, the Office of the Privacy Commissioner (OPC) announced that it will hold public consultations on cloud computing and its impact on personal information. Colin McKay, the director of research at the OPC, says that although there are many benefits to moving to the cloud, there are also many questions that need to be answered. "The conversation has been growing louder and louder from a number of viewpoints when we're talking about cloud computing," McKay said.
