ReadWriteEnterprise is reporting via The Hill, that "the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has opened an investigation into the privacy and security implications of cloud computing."

Given the FTC's aggressive Red Flags Rule program, I would not be surprised if more regulations will be forthcoming. BTW, after many delays, the Red Flags Rule is planned to go into effect on June 1, 2010.
