Cloud computing has many exciting benefits for nonprofits, but it also raises some questions about privacy. Since I often get asked about the privacy implications of the cloud for Canadian nonprofits and charities, I’ll share what I’ve learned so far in this blog.

There's a lot of great content out there but if you don't have the time to stay on top of things (and even if you do!) it can be overwhelming.

These are all great questions and I’ll admit that I didn’t know the answer - so I decided to dive in and do some research.
