Titel: Security and Sovereignty of Cloud Systems
Moderation: Dr. Matthias Schmitz, CyberSecurity Chief Engineer, Airbus CyberSecurity



Digital sovereignty describes the ability of a community to develop, to use, to operate, and to control digital products and services. This includes the ability to ensure the use of trusted technology (both hardware and software, taking into account the entire supply chain), secure connectivity, trusted operations of the infrastructure and continuous security monitoring. Considering cloud services, individual users apparently largely accept the predominance of non-European providers (e.g. Google, Amazon). However, the demand for national sovereignty has been recognised by national governments and European key industries especially in view of their own cloud applications, which has led to the GAIA-X initiative. Beyond that, cloud services continue to expand into the governmental (“Bundescloud”) and military sector, where the necessity to protect national interests becomes even more dominant. In this workshop we will discuss strategies and solutions to ensure security and sovereignty for cloud systems with focus on the governmental and military sector.
