    Implementing an Effective Cloud Service Provider Compliance Program

    The ubiquity of cloud computing platforms as a tool for companies to share, store and back up critical and sensitive data has catapulted the implementation of a comprehensive third-party cloud service provider program to the top of compliance officers’ ever growing to-do lists.  During a recent seminar held by the Society of Corporate Compliance & Ethics, Web Hull, a privacy, data protection and compliance advisor provided a practical framework for engaging, managing, auditing and monitoring third-party cloud computing providers.  This article summarizes those insights, including key risks, and compiles the resources compliance officers can use to meet the relevant state and federal cybersecurity regulatory requirements.  See also “Examining Evolving Legal Ethics in the Age of the Cloud, Mobile Devices and Social Media (Part One of Two),” The Cybersecurity Law Report, Vol. 1, No. 11 (Aug. 26, 2015); Part Two,” Vol. 1, No. 12 (Sep. 16, 2015); and “The Advantages of Sending Data Up to the Cloud,” The Cybersecurity Law Report, Vol. 1, No. 6 (Jun. 17, 2015).

    Managing the Increased Individual Risks and Responsibilities of Compliance Officers

    The heightened focus on cybersecurity has made the roles of compliance officers, often tasked with managing cybersecurity risk, more complex.  As they recognize the new challenges, more and more companies are naming full-time dedicated chief compliance officers.  In this interview with The Cybersecurity Law Report, Jonathan S. Feld, a partner and leader of the white-collar criminal defense & government investigations team at Dykema, discusses the changing role of compliance officers, the individual risks these officers take on and how the risks can be mitigated, as well as collaboration throughout the organization and the qualities that make a strong compliance officer.  See “Establishing Strong Cybersecurity and Data Privacy Leadership: The Roles of the Chief Information Security Officer and Chief Privacy Officer (Part One of Two),” The Cybersecurity Law Report, Vol. 1, No. 3 (May 6, 2015); Part Two of Two, Vol. 1, No. 4 (May 20, 2015).
