In case you missed it, the Daily Debrief talked with Phase2 International about the fact that the company recently joined Apps.gov and is now offering a variety of services to federal agencies.

In other news, Microsoft recently released a paper highlighting some security concerns users should be aware of as they migrate into the cloud.

Privacy in the Cloud Computing Era: A Microsoft Perspective discusses privacy issues and, of course, what the company itself can offer.

It is an interesting read and raises some good points, but not everyone is convinced the company’s approach is a strong one. For more on that, an article by CNET’s Dave Rosenberg.

Also, another perspective on cloud from John Fontana of Computerworld, which explores many of the questions being asked by those who want to know more before jumping on the bandwagon.

Come back next week, when we talk to an industry expert and get his perspective on cloud computing. We’ll also learn how cloud might help with Section 508 compliance.
