As IT became increasingly externalised to cloud-based service providers, new security, privacy and transparency challenges appeared with significant social and economic ramifications. Taking stock of existing schemes, EU-SEC strives to create a certification framework directly targeting these issues, in order to increase trust in the Cloud across all the European Union. This framework is to be developed in close proximity with industrial stakeholders, to streamline the certification process, ensure market-readiness and widespread adoption.

To the consortium, EU-SEC activities are an opportunity to share its multidisciplinary insight and validate its recommendations, as well as benefit from their hands-on experience of cloud-based services certification.
