Brussels opens ears on cloud computing

Steely Neelie wants to hear from the cloudbase

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

The European Commission has opened a consultation on cloud computing ahead of the creation of a Europe-wide strategy.

Neelie Kroes, Digital Agenda Commissioner, said she wanted to hear from cloud developers as well as users.

Of particular interest is feedback on cross-border data protection and liability, standards and interoperability, uptake of cloud services – especially by smaller companies – and ways to promote research and innovation.

The Commission is already looking at data protection rules more generally, including how they can be adapted to cloud computing.

The consultation will run until 31 August and the Commission's strategy on cloud computing will be released next year.

Here is a link to the Commission's public online consultation on clouds. ®
