5 September 2012: The Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) has announced a working group to support EU data protection regulators’ recommendation on cloud computing.
Data privacy and protection remains a major impediment to the broad adoption of Cloud services. In an effort to help Cloud Service Providers and potential Cloud customers objectively evaluate privacy standards, and to support the implementation of Art. 29 WP and EU National Data Protection Regulators recommendations on Cloud Computing, the CSA has launched a new Privacy Level Agreement (PLA) Working Group.
The scope and objective of the PLA Initiative was presented at the European Parliament as part of the General Data Protection Regulation discussion being led by CSA’s Managing Director EMEA, Daniele Catteddu, in collaboration with Paolo Balboni, Scientific Director of the European Privacy Association and co-chair of the PLA Working Group.
