Hogan Lovells White Paper Examines Governmental Access to Data in the U.S. and Latin America

21 July 2014

WASHINGTON, D.C. 21 July 2014 – Hogan Lovells announces that it has published Pan-American Governmental Access to Data in the Cloud, the fifth installment in a series of White Papers examining government access to data held by Cloud service providers. The White Paper, authored by Christopher Wolf and Bret Cohen of Hogan Lovells' Privacy and Information Management Practice, examines the right of governments in the United States and Latin America to access data in the Cloud.

Cloud adoption and growth in Latin America is expected to increase dramatically over the next few years. This growth has been accompanied by concerns about where and how that information is stored, particularly when hosted in a foreign country, and especially in the United States. The White Paper addresses these concerns, concluding that the physical location of Cloud servers does not significantly affect government access to data stored on those servers, and that it is fundamentally incorrect to assume that the United States government’s access to data in the Cloud is greater than that in the Latin American countries examined.

The series of White Papers on governmental access to Cloud data also includes the following:
