A new area of digital trust
Cloud Confidence is an association whose mission is to promote trust in a still opaque cloud computing sector. Cloud Confidence gathers within the same association all the cloud computing’ chain of actors and propose a transparency frame based on data protection, confidentiality and security. Cloud Confidence aims at building this digital trust area. The association stands on a collegial organization that integrates all the actors of cloud industry. Each panel brings its own stakes, expertise and outlook Together they create a major meeting place to better understand the demand and create the adequate supply for users.
While cloud computing services spread around, companies sometimes face troubles finding their way in the diversity of offers in front of them. Even though they are quite a lot to consider starting a migration of IT towards cloud, the mediatization of mass surveillance operated by states, cyber criminality or industrial espionage have generated suspiciousness and concerns in users’ minds. Facing juridical and business stakes linked to data protection, the trust is nevertheless a major element in the rise of cloud technologies.
Cloud Confidence’s initiative aims at establishing a transparent relationship of trust between providers and users. The core aspect of our approach is the certification, based on European and French legislation. The frame of the certification is audited by different independent certifying organisms, such as LSTI in France. This is therefore a competitive advantage and an essential guarantee of control in the ITcloud.
