Press Releases :: What does the Commission mean by secure Cloud computing services in Europe?
Europe should aim to be the world's leading 'trusted cloud region'. Widespread adoption of cloud computing is essential for improving productivity levels in the European economy; but the spread of cloud could slow in light of recent revelations about PRISM and other surveillance programmes. These surveillance revelations have also led to calls for national or regional cloud computing initiatives.
