SCOPE EuropeEU Cloud CoCNews

May 2024 marked 6 years of GDPR applicability. This occasion served as an important driver for privacy professionals to reflect on the crucial progress made so far, as well on the challenges that can still undermine the robust protection of data subjects across the EU.

Moreover, this month also marked a key milestone for the EU Cloud CoC community as we celebrate the third approval anniversary of the Code as well as the third accreditation anniversary of SCOPE Europe as its dedicated monitoring body. 

To commemorate these meaningful dates, we had the privilege of interviewing Pearse O’Donohue, Director for the Future Networks Directorate of DG CONNECT at the European Commission. Pearse, who was a keynote speaker at the approval ceremony three years ago, provides again valuable insights on the role of GDPR codes of conduct, discussing their evolution, challenges, impact, and potential future developments.

We are excited to share Pearse’s insights with our community – watch the full interview here.

While celebrating this milestone, we would like to once again extend our gratitude to all those who have contributed to the success of the EU Cloud CoC. Your dedication and commitment throughout the development and implementation of the Code have been instrumental in fostering a secure and transparent cloud ecosystem.
