Trust in cloud computing is essential.

Without trust, the technology will not reach its full potential. And at the core to that trust is data protection.  

The EU Data Protection Code of Conduct for cloud service providers contains rigorous assurances for the protection of data in cloud services. Companies and organizations signing up to the EU Cloud Code of Conduct (the Code) unequivocally commit to implement robust data protection. The Code’s security policies will stand up to the significant personal data challenges ahead.

The EU Cloud Code of Conduct was released in February 2017 following a close partnership between a cloud selected industry group and the European data protection regulatory bodies. As the deadline approaches for EU Member States to get ready to implement the GDPR, as of 25 May 2018, the EU Cloud CoC is being amended to align with those rules. Hence the companies signing up to the Code send the strongest possible signal of their future GDPR intentions.
