The Federal Trade Commission will hold a virtual panel discussion on May 11, 2023 with a diverse set of experts to discuss the business practices of cloud computing providers including issues related to security, competition, and emerging technology issues associated with cloud computing. 

Cloud computing is used by a wide range of industries for on-demand access to data storage, servers, networks and more, and is increasingly central to the economy.

FTC staff is currently seeking public comment on these and other cloud-related issues outlined in its Request for Information, as well as the impact of cloud computing on specific industries including healthcare, finance, transportation, e-commerce, and defense. The staff announced that the deadline to submit comments has been extended by 30 days until June 21.

FTC Chair Lina M. Khan will provide opening remarks before the panel discussion begins. A full list of panelists will be posted on the event page  prior to the event.
