Beware the ides of march
How will HMG deal with the "The CLOUD Act (S. 2383 and H.R. 4943)" that is going through both houses in the USA?
The CLOUD Act could let police outside the United States grab data stored in the United States, and wiretap phone calls passing through the United States, while ignoring U.S. privacy laws. Foreign police could request data on non-U.S. persons not living in the United States, sending those requests directly to U.S. companies. During this data collection, the targets of these foreign police inevitably will be communicating with Americans. If you happen to be communicating with one of these foreign targets, then foreign police can often share your communications with the U.S. government. Then the U.S. government can use these communications against you, without a warrant, and without notifying them.
Implicit in this is the granting of any US Agency the rights to our data as it is as far as the US Government is concerned held on US soil.
IMHO, the Government is sleepwalking into a major data nightmare. Giving all our data to Amazon is asking for it big time.

All to save a few squid... madness.
