SERECA co-organized the first workshop of the DPSP cluster, which is a EU-funded group of projects focused on Data Protection Security and Privacy (DPSP) field (https://eucloudclusters.wordpress.com/data-protection-security-and-privacy-in-the-cloud/). The workshop was held in Napoli (IT) on 23rd of February 2016. A great result was achieved: more than 100 people participated to the workshop.
The participants projects (SPECS, COCO Cloud, SERECA, MUSA and CLIPS) presented their researches and the work done during their project life. Some of these, including our, showed a demo of pilot applications use cases. Panel sessions took place aiming at:
- Understand how to maximize the impact of EU-funded research and innovation project results in the areas of Data Protection, Security and Privacy in the Cloud. The participant projects found synergies in the methods, tools and solutions. New collaboration in the organisation of joint dissemination events, such as joint Workshops and conferences, or joint papers, were born.
- Discuss the market orientation and adoption of EU-funded research and innovation project results in the areas of Data Protection, Security and Privacy in the Cloud in order to define valid exploitation strategies.
- Define the research and innovation needs in H2020 in the areas of Data Protection, Security and Privacy in the Cloud.
SERECA participated to the workshop with partners EPSILON and EIPLI. The contribution provided was both on the dissemination and exploitation strategies and, equally important, in the presentation of the innovative technologies choices adopted in our project. Furthermore, EPSILON and EIPLI presented one of the project use cases: the Water Supply Network Monitoring (WSNM) application. It was shown how the security mechanisms used in SERECA will allow the cloudification of the WSNM application and that the security requirements of EIPLI (the use case provider) will be met.
