CloudWATCH2 services include the provision of cloud risk management guides for private and public organisations to lower barriers and ensure a trusted European cloud market. In order to accomplish this objective CloudWATCH2 released D2.3 Risk-Based Decision Making Mechanisms For Cloud Service In The Public Sector.
Benefits & Risks
CloudWATCH2, with the D3.2 Risk Based Decision Making Mechanism For Cloud Service In The Public Sector, proposes an initial version of a risk-profiling methodology specifically suited for non–expert PAs willing to adopt cloud services.

Cloud Computing has risen from an unheard of terminology to the base technology powering Dropbox, Amazon & Gmail.
But just how fast is Cloud Computing actually growing? Which are the best countries for Cloud environments?
The Digital Single Market Strategy will maximise the growth potential of the European Digital Economy and of its society, so that every European can enjoy its full benefit.
The economy and society of Europe need to make the most of digital. 47% of EU population is not properly digitally skilled, yet in the near future, 90% of jobs will require some level of digital skills.

For the past few years everyone has marked-out a constant increase in public and private clouds.

All provided with very effective weapons, compared to defences not always up to the menace.
This short film from the FP-7 SUCRE explains benefits of cloud computing in the public sector. Cloud Computing its not about investing upfront, its about security as you do not risk your service being destroyed by accident.
