The Internet Society Hong Kong and the Cloud Security Alliance Hong Kong and Macau Chapter today jointly announced the results of the second year- “Hong Kong Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) Cloud Adoption, Security & Privacy Readiness Survey”, which sponsored by Microsoft Hong Kong to facilitate the Cloud development in Hong Kong.
Chester Soong, Chairman of Internet Society Hong Kong said the Cloud services adoption rate among the SMEs has increased significant. And they have been paying greater attention towards the date security issue.
Claudius Lam, Chairman of Cloud Security Alliance Hong Kong and Macau Chapter pointed that SMEs have set higher expectation to their Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) since the Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance has been enacted. He advised SMEs to consider CSPs who comply with international standards, like ISO/IEC 27018 for better data privacy protection.
