The Federal Trade Commission announced it will hold a virtual panel discussion on May 11, 2023, with a diverse set of experts to discuss the business practices of cloud computing providers including issues related to security, competition, and emerging technology issues associated with cloud computing.
Cloud computing has revolutionized the way many industries operate by providing on-demand access to data storage, powerful servers, networking facilities and more, all of which have become increasingly important to the economy. This technology has allowed businesses to scale and operate more efficiently while also reducing their operational costs by eliminating the need for costly hardware infrastructure. From small start-ups to large corporations, cloud-based services have become a key factor for success in today’s rapidly evolving market.
FTC staff is currently seeking public comment on these and other cloud-related issues outlined in its Request for Information, as well as the impact of cloud computing on specific industries including healthcare, finance, transportation, e-commerce, and defense. The staff announced that the deadline to submit comments has been extended by 30 days until June 21.
FTC Chair Lina M. Khan will provide opening remarks before the panel discussion begins. A full list of panelists will be posted on the event page prior to the event.
The event will begin at 1 p.m. ET and will be webcast at www.ftc.gov.
The event is free and open to the public. Registration is not required to watch the webcast. More information about the discussion can be found on the event page.
