How is the Trusted Cloud label for cloud services obtained?
Text

The basis of the Trusted Cloud label for cloud services is the criteria catalogue that reflects the minimum requirements. Amongst other things, this means that specific information regarding certain attributes of a cloud service must be provided, for example terms of agreements. In other cases, minimum requirements include a threshold value, for example a guaranteed minimum availability. Numerous criteria are consistent with the inspection scope of quality labels already established within the cloud sector. Therefore, providers can strengthen their criteria fulfilment by submitting other certificates or quality labels.

After checking the criteria catalogue in the German, English or French version, you can register as a cloud service provider on the portal and start the listing process. At this time, only the German version of the listing process is available. We are therefore happy to assist with the registration process and answer any questions.

The Trusted Cloud label is awarded following a successful inspection of these minimum requirements. A defined process is conducted for this purpose. During the process, the fulfilment of the requirements to be listed on the Trusted Cloud Portal is examined by an independent organisation and a recommendation on the listing of the respective offer is made to the Trusted Cloud advisory board, which decides upon the listing.

Once the Trusted Cloud advisory board confirms the listing, the audited and certified cloud solutions can use the label for one year.

Headline
How can you prove compliance with the minimum requirements?
Text

Cloud service providers can prove that their services comply with the minimum requirements:

  • by means of self-imposed commitments through which the providers give legally binding
  • assurance of fulfilment of the minimum requirements.
