OPEN PEER REVIEW: Privacy Level Agreement 4 Europe V2

OPEN PEER REVIEW: Privacy Level Agreement 4 Europe V2

The Cloud Security Alliance would like to invite you to review and comment on the Privacy Level Agreement 4 Europe V2.

The Cloud Security Alliance published in February 2013 the “Privacy Level Agreement Outline for CSPs Providing Services in the European Union” (PLA4EU V.1). The PLA4EU V.1 should be considered as a powerful transparency and voluntary disclosure mechanism for those Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) offering services in the European Economic Area (EEA).

Now we have just completed the PLA4EU v2, with the objective to define a Privacy compliance mechanism for the European Union based on PLA4EU V.1.

The PLA Working Group has identified the steps necessary to turn the PLA4EU V.1 from a transparency mechanism into a compliance tool, and to seek for the endorsement of the Art.29 Working Party.

This is your opportunity to provide feedback.
The open review and comments period ends on May 22, 2015.

Submitting feedback is easy with our three-step process. Follow the below link to the peer review site:


We appreciate your assistance. Thank you in advance for your time and contribution. If you are interested in getting involved with this working group, please contact [email protected].
