Cloud Compliance Guide

Managing Privacy Compliance in the Cloud

Privacy compliance is growing more complex. Regulations like the GDPR, CCPA, and CPRA require companies to address many data protection topics, including privacy assessments, cookie consent, and data subject access requests.


Cloud-based services often play a dual role in data privacy management, determining how personal data is processed and performing the processing of the data. This duality places extra pressure on cloud-based solutions to pay attention to data privacy and accountability or risk significant consequences.

Trust is the Linchpin Among Cloud Companies, Customers, and End Users

While regulatory compliance can be considered a “price of doing business” by some, adherence to regulations can produce an environment that delivers a level of trust that will attract and retain customers. By following regulations, such as the CCPA and the GDPR, you can have confidence that you’re delivering a service your customers can trust.
