New ENISA Cloud experts' group and Cloud incident reporting survey

ENISA has launched a Cloud Security and Resilience expert group. The initiative builds on ENISA's track record of publications on Cloud computing, and its work with a range of different experts from the private and public sectors.

Published on June 05, 2013

The new group held its inaugural meeting last month in Amsterdam, with 20 experts from 12 countries. Highlights included:

  • ENISA kicking off the debate by showing the role of Cloud computing in the EU Cybersecurity Strategy, with a particular focus on incident reporting.
  • Tjabbe Bos (Software and Services, Cloud Computing at DG Connect) from the European Commission giving an overview of Cloud-related policy initiatives (the Cloud strategy, the Cloud partnership, the NIS directive, etcetera) and how they relate to each other.
  • ENISA explaining its programme of work on Cloud security, including an updated Cloud security guide for SMEs, and a study on different approaches to governmental clouds in the EU.

The expert group will be closely involved in ENISA's work on all of the above.

Survey on Incident reporting in the Cloud

ENISA has also opened a survey on incident reporting in the Cloud. The survey aims to better understand what would be a pragmatic and cost-effective approach to incident reporting in Cloud computing, looking at what services and incidents should be in scope.

You are invited to participate, give your feedback and be involved in ENISA's work in this area. To take part, go to Survey on Incident Reporting for Cloud Computing
