More than one year after the enactment of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in mid of 2018, many firms in the European economic area are still uncertain about how to interpret and fulfill its data protection requirements. The consequences of GDPR non-compliance can be severe. Just recently, a German data protection authority ordered a 14.5 million EUR fine because personal customer data was not deleted but stored forever, which is against the data protection principles of the GDPR.
This uncertainty is especially true for cloud providers who store and process vast amount of customer data. The news is full of articles on data leaks at cloud providers making data protection and GDPR compliance a major concern.
