As anticipated by the EU Data Strategy, the demand for digital sovereignty has been exacerbated with Europe’s exposure to its vulnerabilities from the war in Ukraine, supply chain dependencies, constant data growth, increasing severity of cyberattacks on critical infrastructures, more adversarial trade and security relationships with China, and the ongoing redistributed transatlantic partnership. In this tense geopolitical, technical, and regulatory landscape, all digitally transforming European organisations must rethink their IT strategies. Their cloud computing strategy is becoming their lifeblood strategy.
Is cloud sovereignty the silver bullet to take back control over European data, boosting the competitiveness and resilience of the European industry and making Europe the epicentre of green cloud computing? What does sovereign cloud mean for public and private sector organisations, and what are the conditions for the cloud market in Europe to meet the booming demand for sovereign cloud solutions?
This Forum Europe and VMware conference, will focus on ongoing work delivering a solid market for EU data and cloud sovereignty. Diving into detail about how regulatory frameworks can enable the development and deployment of highly secure, portable, interoperable, and resource-efficient next-generation cloud technologies. The conference will examine where the industry can contribute to the development and implementation of policy and regulation and, by extension, the roll-out of critical cloud and data services that drive innovation and data collaboration in Europe.

The demand for sovereign cloud and data solutions is driven by various factors, including data protection and privacy, cyber security, compliance with EU regulations, including the need to respect data localisation rules. But what does the market look like currently? How are different EU member states and vertical industry sectors approaching sovereignty when procuring cloud and data services?
While developing a regulatory framework for sovereign cloud solutions is in progress, much work is still to be done. The EU is creating, implementing, and updating regulations and policies to match the fast-evolving technology and market changes. With the current European Commission mandate endpoint in 2024, in this session, you will learn about the priorities and initiatives in place to drive policy and market agenda and what we can expect post-summer 2024.
The event will be the third edition of Focus on Fish, with the most recent event having taken place on 23/02/2022.
The session replays can be found below.
Topics included fish welfare, practical refinements for fish & welfare assessment and humane endpoints.
