It's the metadata, stupid! Privacy versus the big cloud providers

Speaker: Sjoera Nas


Sjoera Nas will speak about her experiences negotiating with big cloud providers about their compliance with EU privacy rules (General Data Protection Regulation and the ePrivacy Directive). She will summarise the key problems and outcomes, and discuss future EU legislative developments and alternatives such as Gaia X and national clouds.


Drs. Sjoera Nas worked for the Dutch Data Protection Authority (Autoriteit Persoonsgegevens) between 2006 and 2018, as head of the internet inspection team. She also worked for XS4ALL and Bits of Freedom.

Since her move to Privacy Company in 2018 she has written many DPIAs ("Data Protection Impact Assessment") on Microsoft, Google, Zoom, Oracle, SAP, and AWS cloud services for the Dutch central government, and for the Dutch universities (represented by SURF). Read the DPIAs for government and on Google for SURF.
