CloudWATCH2 1st Cloud Security Plugfest


The H2020 project CloudWatch2 organises the 1st Cloud Security Plugfest in Madrid, Spain, on 14 November 2016.

Plugfest is an event where stakeholders come together to find out whether and how well their projects use security standards. What are the most common standard implementation use cases and identified gaps in standards and recommendations for new standardization efforts. Discussions will go around standards in that area such as CSA OCF, EU’s Data Protection Directive, ISO 19086, ISO 27001, ISO 27002, ISO 27017, ISO 27018, NIST SP500-292, or NIST SP 800-144, to mention but a few.

Cloud Security Plugfest is a forum where executive assessment of standards adoption is performed with the objective to evaluate the policy readiness and not just technology readiness of projects.

The participation to the Cloud Plugfest is free of charge.
