CISPE is a coalition of cloud infrastructure providers (also known as Infrastructure as a Service) that provide cloud services to customers in Europe. The CISPE Code of Conduct helps cloud customers ensure that their cloud infrastructure provider uses appropriate data protection standards to protect their data in accordance with the GDPR. Some important advantages of code are as follows: Cloud applications typically process personal data, including users` IP addresses. This means that cloud application operators subject to the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) are data protection officers. In this case, AWS is a so-called subcontractor and must authorize and contribute to audits performed by the controller.
