Abstract

The nature of cloud computing is to allow the free flow of data. This is demonstrated in the application of public cloud computing which encourages the data to be shared by the internet users with no limitation of geographical boundaries. The service providers of cloud computing can position their service center anywhere in the world. In some jurisdictions, there are laws governing the use of personal data. Amongst provisions is a provision restricting the exportation of personal data to a country which has no enforceable data protection law. Although, this prohibition is required to safeguard the personal data of the citizens of a country it is circuitously limited the cooperation between countries and this will affect the economic development. This study aims at: How does the concept of free flow of data can assist in the economic growth of a country? Is it true that the law and policy restricting the free flow of data can affect the development of economy?
