Security Requirements for Cloud Computing in Crisis Management

ABSTRACT

Cloud computing provides a convenient tool for crisis response teams to collaborate and share information no matter where the team members are located. Depending on the type of crisis, there may be differing security requirements for the information, and this can impact how the cloud computing is managed or whether additional security measures should be in place. This paper discusses the possible use of cloud computing as a communication tool in crisis situations, information security requirements for various types of crises, and the security requirements of cloud computing in this role.

To Catch a Thief in the Cloud: A Paradigm for Law Enforcement

ABSTRACT

Control over most of the world’s data including national security, criminal investigations, medical secrets, intellectual property, and a host of other important rights and responsibilities is governed by a paradigm that is conducted in the Internet ‘cloud’. Based on empirical research and an analysis of international and national legal regimes, case decisions, and forensic case analysis, this paper explores the challenges of reaching into the cloud and the proactive measures that will be necessary to improve legal certainty in the global electronic marketplace. The paper then considers the international and national frameworks necessary for control over the predators in the cloud, and the nature and type of evidentiary and jurisdictional issues that may arise in courts of law and tribunals around the globe.
