Cloud Standards Coordination

In December 2012, the European Commission (EC) and the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) launched the Cloud Standardization Coordination (CSC) initiative.

Why: the overall objective of the Cloud Standards Coordination initiative led by ETSI was to identify a detailed map of the standards required to support a series of policy objectives defined by the European Commission, in particular in critical areas such as security, interoperability, data portability and reversibility.
Who: the initiative attracted cloud industry players, public authorities, user associations and more than 20 standards setting organizations to work collectively on this objective.
Phase 1: after a launch workshop in December 2012, the work of CSC Phase 1 was undertaken in 2013, with a final report report published in November and a presentation workshop held in December 2013.
Phase 2: in February 2015, CSC Phase 2 has been launched to address issues left open after CSC Phase 1, with the objective to provide a detailed report at the end of October 2015.
