The Federal Trade Commission is urging the Federal Communications Commission to consider the privacy implications of cloud computing in formulating the National Broadband Plan, due to Congress next month. The FTC interest into cloud computing was prompted by an EPIC complaint to the FTC in March 2009, in which EPIC described numerous privacy and security risk involving cloud-based applications. A subsequent letter from computer researchers and security experts supported EPIC's findings. For more information, see EPIC: Cloud Computing.
