In recent news, there has been an uproar amongst US companies regarding the NSA Prism Program.
It’s been said that the US government had direct access to data stored on servers of well-known companies; this news was leaked by whistle-blower Edward Snowden.
"The PRISM disclosures are damaging, and I think I'm prepared to speculate extremely damaging to commercial firms that have offered cloud and related kinds of services, and that do or would benefit from efficient cross-border data flows," says Philip Verveer, the former U.S. coordinator for international communications and information policy at the State Department.
