On 27 March, HP announced it had been selected by the European Commission to coordinate the CoCo (confidential and compliant) Cloud project, which aims to ensure that users can share data in the cloud securely and privately share data.

Jakub Boratynski, head of Trust and Security Unit within DG CONNECT, explains in the press release that the project "will help overcome regulatory and legal issues among EU countries to ensure that sensitive data is carefully controlled and always protected by context-adaptive solutions. As trust in cloud increases, so will the trust of users in cloud services, ultimately benefitting the digital economy and society in general."

The news was covered by several media such as Le Figaro, Il Corriere della Comunicazioni and Business Cloud News.
