Open Survey: CIRRUS: Towards an EU Framework for Cloud Service Provider Security

Certification, InteRnationalisation and standaRdization in cloUd Security (CIRRUS) is a FP7 project funded by the European Commission The objective of this project is to bring together representatives of industry organizations, law enforcement agencies, cloud services providers, standard and certification services organizations, cloud consumers, auditors, data protection authorities, policy makers, software component industry etc. with interests in security and privacy issues in cloud computing. CSA EMEA is a partner of the CIRRUS project consortium. After a very successful first workshop (28th of February, Brussels) CIRRUS will launch an open survey: CIRRUS: Towards an EU framework for Cloud Service Provider security. The objective of this survey is to gather information on security activities as well as future priorities in cloud computing. The main scope is to study the security aspects of cloud by scanning the industrial interest and validation priorities of different actors. In detail we want to collect information on the usefulness of cloud services (from providers, customers etc) and the ease of using it in respect to security and privacy, not forgetting trust and compliance issues. Combining the feedback received from this survey and by studying the efforts in place in the EU region, the outcome will be a gap analysis, which will highlight the cloud security areas in need for further development. This survey addresses to a wide range of stakeholders: from cloud consumers to law enforcement agencies and standardization bodies. Please follow the link to the survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/FV3P3WH We (CSA and the CIRRUS partners: Atos, Grant Thornton, IPA, ASI and PKT) are looking forward to receiving your answers, your feedback is of great value for the project. We will keep you informed on the outcome of this survey.
