Meeting of the AUDITOR project in Karlsruhe

(07.05.2024) On April 26, 2024, the closing event of the research project "European Cloud Service Data Protection Certification" (AUDITOR) took place in Karlsruhe. The research project was led by the cii research group in the role of consortium leader over the project duration of more than 6.5 years.

The aim of the "AUDITOR" research project as the successor to the Trusted Cloud Data Protection Profile (TCDP) was to design, implement and test a sustainable data protection certification for cloud services. The AUDITOR project was funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Protection with a total volume of approx. 3.4 million euros.

Thanks to the interdisciplinary cooperation of the AUDITOR consortium and the ongoing support of many associated partners, the project has overcome a whole series of hurdles, so many successes could be looked back on at the closing event. AUDITOR has always taken on a pioneering role throughout Europe in developing data protection certifications in accordance with Art. 42 GDPR. 

During the event, the key results of the project were presented, but the project partners also reported on the continuation of the resulting "GDPR CC" certification beyond the end of the project and the upcoming certifications.
