European cloud providers’ association issues data protection code of conduct

On September 27, 2016, the Cloud Infrastructure Services Providers of Europe (CISPE) announced the publication of the Data Protection Code of Conduct for Cloud Infrastructures Services. The CISPE comprises several major European cloud infrastructure providers.

The code of conduct provides that the certified cloud infrastructure providers:

  • will process and store data exclusively within the EU/EEA territories. The processing and storage will comply with the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in force in 2018;
  • will not reuse their customers’ data for their own benefit or sale it to third parties.

The CISPE Data Protection Code of Conduct will help the group’s customers (Software vendors, System Integrators, Manufacturing and Services Industries, Administrations, NGOs, etc.) to regain control over their data.
