Our objectives

The goal is to jointly agree on requirements for the use of public cloud technology

Our interest is that the high European regulatory and data protection standards are implemented with European and non-European Cloud Service Providers. The aim is that financial institutions will be more independent in their selection of technology. Thus, we want to strengthen competition.

Skill transfer

We encourage and organize skill transfer between the participants by jointly developing best practice solutions which can be either technical solutions, process or contractual solutions.

Becoming experts for cloud services in Europe

ECUC develops a joint position on requirements for compliant use of public cloud technology. These requirements respect all important points of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Representing its industry and with its experiences the coalition also aims to inform or advise governmental and regulatory bodies regarding the use of public cloud technology. This may support regulators in evaluating vendor concentration while going further down the road with their own cloud adoption plans at the same time.
