Wll you may’ve read recently, Microsoft’s Brad Smith delivered a speech on cloud computing at the Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C. last month. “Brad described the many ways cloud computing can increase the efficiency and transparency of government and other parts of society, and noted areas where the development of cloud computing must be carefully managed, particularly when it comes to privacy and data security. He encouraged industry and policymakers to take action to build confidence in cloud computing, and proposed the Cloud Computing Advancement Act to promote innovation, protect consumers and provide government with new tools to address the critical issues of data privacy and security.” While Brad was in D.C. he stopped by C-SPAN to film a segment of The Communicators, a “weekly series”. Brad spoke with Pedro Echevarria and Wyatt Kash about “The Future of Cloud Computing,” and explains the new technology of so-called "Cloud Computing," in which users access data and applications over the Internet rather than on local computer servers. His company is asking Congress for new rules to protect business and consumer information.
