Plans for EU Cloud Security Label Halted

A planned vote could take place in May.

A vote for an EU cybersecurity certification scheme has been shelved.

The European Union plans to introduce a cybersecurity certification scheme to vouch for the cybersecurity of cloud services and help governments and companies pick a secure and trusted vendor for their cloud computing business. ENISA have been selected to provide a reference point to develop candidate cybersecurity certification schemes.

However national cybersecurity experts shelved a vote on Tuesday for the draft EU cybersecurity label until next month, according to reports.

If a vote does take place, the next stage would be an opinion from EU countries and the final decision by the European Commission.
