To all our German readers looking to get an insightful overview on the role of codes of conduct in the cloud environment, make sure you check this out.

SCOPE Europe’s Managing Director, Jörn Wittman, alongside Gregor Haidenthaler, Partner at Hochleitner Rechtsanwälte GmbH, have published a highly interesting article at the German IT-Compliance review MMR Zeitschrift für IT-Recht und Recht der Digitalisierung.

Given the fact that the extent of the proof of compliance is a direct product of a Code’s content, scope, as well as its specific monitoring design, the authors explore the impact of such diversity when it comes to minimizing legal uncertainties and risks.
