Enabling Cloud Jurisdictional Plurality and Automated Obligations using LegalRuleML-based SL
Dr. Said Tabet
Senior Technologist and GRC Strategist, EMC Corporation
ABOUT THIS SESSION:
As Cloud computing matures, the issue of national Sovereignty begins to take center stage in the commoditization of computing resources. The use of semantic languages and machine-readable legal databases with knowledge-based data centers provides business leaders and technical architects leverage to address multiple legal requirements and service level contracts with a single technology platform. This talk will introduce Cloud computing and its challenges. We will explore the importance of semantic technologies and trusted computing principles as enablers of a balanced implementation of automated service level measurement and contractual monitoring, preserving the needs of nation states and their jurisdictional requirements.
