"Sekretessreglerad information stored in the services owned by companies that are not subject to Swedish law shall be deemed to be disclosed information. It noted the E-sam, a medlemsdrivet programme for collaboration between 23 government authorities and SALAR, in a statement in november."
"Despite the fact it stores the six municipalities and four regions sekretessreglerad information in foreign-owned cloud computing services, a survey shows that Today's Society has realised."
"– There is a great risk that they are violating the law if it is an american supplier, " says Conny Larsson, a lawyer and expert on cyber law, told the newspaper."
" If you use a provider in another country, and write a confidentiality agreement in which they promise to keep quiet, then they must still leave the data on the country's authorities requested them out with the support of the national law."
"the Investigation, which the newspaper asked the it-safety officers on their use of cloud services, also shows that even more stores personal data in cloud services among foreign companies. 64 per cent of municipalities and 56 per cent of the regions indicated in the survey that they are doing it."
"the Survey shows that the use of cloud services is expected to increase in the municipalities and regions. 90 per cent of respondents seeing an increase in the coming year."
