With nations like Germany, the UK, and France leading the way, the continent is positioning itself as a major stakeholder in global cloud security, emphasizing stringent data protection laws and public-private partnerships for a resilient cybersecurity ecosystem.


The UK has taken significant steps to promote cloud security. For instance, the UK government has proactively launched measures to bolster cloud safety throughout the nation. The National Cyber Security Center (NCSC) has set forth 14 guiding principles focused on the safe usage, setup, and implementation of cloud platforms. Additionally, a collaboration between UK Cloud Health, a government-endorsed cloud provider, and the NHS aims to offer both security management services and expert consultancy, assisting healthcare entities in formulating secure cloud integration tactics. Furthermore, the UK government is actively soliciting feedback on enhancing the protection and robustness of domestic data centers, underscoring their dedication to defending critical systems.


Germany’s dedication to cloud security is evident through its rapid adoption rates, with 61% of its companies implementing cloud security, outpacing even the UK. Despite facing challenges like a 39% data breach rate in cloud systems in 2022, the German government is proactive, introducing the 2021 Cyber Security Strategy. This framework emphasizes societal, industrial, and international collaboration, advocating for digital sovereignty and a security-by-design approach. Supported by strict data protection laws like the GDPR, Germany is emerging as a pivotal player in the global cloud security landscape.
