Cloud computing is becoming increasingly popular in all industries because of its unlimited storage capacity, higher cost savings, and better mobility and reliability. Companies large and small are moving their legacy systems to the cloud more than ever to increase efficiency and better serve their customers and customers.
However, the move to cloud-based HR systems brings with it privacy and security concerns such as data access, use, storage and transmission, among other things. Cloud computing and labor laws vary from region to region. And when you consider that the “cloud” is not limited to one location, there are always legal challenges as to how and when data can be stored or transferred from a cloud service provider in one country to another in a different region. These complex scenarios have led to the adoption of data laws like the CLOUD Act in the United States and the Data Protection Act In the United Kingdom.
