Scope of Work

Security was one of the points of attention of CSC Phase 1. Though the availability of Cloud Computing standards related to security and their level of maturity were considered as relatively good, some areas of concern were remaining, in particular with respect to the proof of conformance (seen as a moving target).

Some of the priorities identified in Work Item 1 have been reviewed under this prism. The objective is to provide users with an updated view of the interplay between standards, certification and regulation and consequently, how they can shape their decisions in this space.

The final report provides conclusions and recommendations in support of the European commission strategy.
