Our members seek to build a competitive, innovative and resilient digital economy while upholding shared values and interests of data privacy, effective cybersecurity protection, and supporting open markets.

We believe that an inclusive and non-discriminatory EUCS – supporting the use of the most innovative and trusted cloud services from around the world – will help our members and their customers prosper at home and abroad, thus contributing to Europe’s digital ambitions and strengthening its resilience.
