Making Cloud SLAs readily usable in the EU private sector

Workshop: EU Cluster on Data Protection, Security and Privacy, 23 February 2016, Naples

Date: 
Fri, 26/02/2016
The 1st Workshop of the Project Cluster on Data Protection, Security and Privacy in the Cloud takes place on 23 February 2016, in Naples. 
 
The Cluster of EU projects, especially SPECS, COCO Cloud, SERECA, MUSA and CLIPS, is hosting the  DPSP Workshop 2016 to address some of the key issues of cloud security and privacy. High on the agenda are the needs and challenges related to security level agreements, data sharing agreements, reactive cloud applications, data localisation, security of cloud-based public services, secure communication and processing in cloud platforms. 
 
Workshop goals
 
Facilitate the writing, understanding, analysis, management, enforcement and dissolution of agreements or policies; going from high level descriptions (close to natural language) to system enforceable policies and agreements.
Remove technical impediments to secure cloud computing, and thereby encourage greater uptake of cost-effective and innovative cloud solutions in Europe, by exploiting secure commodity CPU hardware and supporting regulatory-compliant data localisation.
Promote preventive security approach embedding security mechanisms in applications.
Evaluate the most appropriate enforcing mechanisms depending on the underlying infrastructure for enforcing policies.
Promote adoption of cloud in public administrations.
