Video: Data Protection and cloud services

A shift towards a greater use of cloud computing is well underway. Cloud services are frequently cited by charities as free or low cost, flexible and easy to use alternatives to old servers.

Cloud based services are becoming increasing popular across the health and social care sector.  For those on a tight budget, services like Office 365, Google Apps and Dropbox are attractive becuase they're either free or low cost, and easy to use and set up to use.  However, you still have data protection obligations that make your organisation liable for any breach or loss of personal data.

This webinar with data protection expert, author and trainer, Paul Ticher, covers charitys' responsibilities to keep their data safe and be aware of the data protection guidelines in using cloud-based services.

The topics covered include:

* using cloud services outside the UK
* understanding your obligations and being compliant
* tips for selecting a cloud provider
