Vice-President of IBM Cloud EMEA, Agnieszka Bruyère, held the opening statement of the EU Cloud Compliance Summit 2021, announcing the approval of the EU Cloud CoC by the Belgian Data Protection Authority and the accreditation of SCOPE Europe as its monitoring body.
Bruyère gave us an insightful overview of the uniqueness and importance of the EU Cloud CoC and its approval. As she rightfully stressed, up to now, there was a lack of reliable and easy tool to assess the compliance of cloud computing services, which created uncertainty to Cloud Users as well as Cloud Service Providers. Ending this period, according to Bruyére, the 20th of May marked a milestone, which will change and build trust in the cloud computing industry.
Also providing interesting insights on the journey that leads to the approval of the EU Cloud CoC and the accreditation of SCOPE Europe, Agnieszka Bruyére underlined how proud she is of IBM, contributing to this important project and being part of this broad community.
