This green paper, aimed at Cloud service providers offering their services in the EU, looks at two key laws that demand information security and service stability: the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and the NIS Directive (Directive on security of network and information systems). A number of their requirements can be addressed together, in a streamlined compliance project. Under the GDPR, in Cloud service providers’ role as data processors, there is even an opportunity to turn this demand into a unique selling point: appealing to prospective clients’ desire for security by proving compliance.
This green paper:
- Outlines the business opportunity for Cloud providers under the GDPR;
- Highlights the key GDPR and NIS Directive requirements;
- Elaborates on how compliance projects can be streamlined; and
- Explains how Cloud providers can ensure – and prove – compliance.
