On June 16, in Riga, the Ministry of Defence of the Republic of Latvia and the European Union Agency for Network and Information Security (ENISA) will organise the EU28 Cloud Security Conference: Reaching the Cloud Era in the European Union.

Prior registration in order to participate in the conference is mandatory. Please, register before June 11 in the home page of the European Commission.

Discussing the ‘Legal & Compliance’ track, participants will address topics like cloud certification, cloud services procurement, security standards, data protection and trans-border data access, while talking about the ‘Technologies & Solutions’ track, participants will focus on encryption in clouds, big data, evolution of cloud computing, cloud forensics, research, development and innovation.

Jānis Sārts, the State Secretary of the Ministry of Defence of the Republic of Latvia and professor Udo Helmbrecht, the Executive Director of the ENISA will open the conference. Keynote speeches will be given by the high-level representatives of the European Commission, industry and academia.

The conference will gather the audience of 150 governmental and corporate decision-makers, representatives from the EU institutions and agencies, research and development managers, cyber security practitioners and researchers.

The programme and the list of confirmed speakers of the EU28 Cloud Security Conference: Reaching the Cloud Era in the European Union is available in the ENISA home page.

Cloud services are designed to provide easy, scalable access to applications, resources and services, and are fully managed by a cloud services provider. They can dynamically scale to meet the needs of its users, and since the service provider supplies the hardware and software, there is no need for a company to provide or deploy its own resources, or allocate IT staff to manage the service.  Examples of cloud services include online data.

As cyber issues are taking an increasingly greater role in today’s security agenda, the Latvian Presidency of the Council of the European Union in the first half of 2015 has set the Digital Europe as one of three policy priorities. Cyber security and defence form an inherent part of this priority. The findings of the event will be presented at the Digital Assembly that will take place on June 17-18 in Riga.
