The Cloud Infrastructure Services Providers in Europe announced more than 30 services comply with the CISPE Data Protection Code of Conduct. The CISPE, a coalition of cloud providers serving millions of European customers, states Amazon Web Services and UpCloud are among the services committing to the code of conduct. Cloud infrastructure services are operated in data centers in Bulgaria, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, and the U.K. The CISPE Data Protection Code of Conduct is designed to help customers ensure cloud providers are using the proper data protection standards consistent with both the current Data Protection Directive, and the upcoming General Data Protection Regulation. "Any customer will know that if their Cloud Infrastructure Provider is complying with the CISPE Code of Conduct, their data will be protected to clear standards," said CISPE Chairman Alban Schmutz. "CISPE Code of Conduct provides Europeans with the confidence that their information will not be used for anything other than what they stipulate."
