Workshop & Tutorial on Continuous Auditing Based Certification on 8th October


Continuous auditing is the breakthrough needed to improve assurance, transparency and trust in cloud services

This workshop revolves around the EU-SEC approach for adopting Continuous Auditing Based Certification scheme for Cloud Services. The workshop will include a demo and hands-on session showing the pilot architecture modules and functionalities for the end-users and auditors.

Third party audits and certifications have become the most effective solution to increase the level of trust in the reliability of security and privacy measures implemented by CSPs. Such audits are traditionally performed annually or bi-annually, which means that whenever interim changes are made to security and privacy practices, these amendments go unaudited until the next official check. This creates gaps in assurance during the periods where no audits are conducted. While this may be an acceptable risk for some cloud customers, for others, these assurance gaps remain a strong barrier to cloud adoption.

The EU-SEC project is developing a process that will bring continuous assurance by addressing the lack of regularity and proactivity of traditional “point-in-time” certifications. The method developed for this is called Continuous Auditing Based Certification. By using technology to monitor and flag non-compliant activity on an ongoing basis, continuous auditing delivers an enhancement to traditional certification. It increases the assessment frequency via a continuous workflow. State of the art security monitoring systems supervise the IT’s security status by collecting data from the CSP’s information system. This collected data is further assessed and used as the basis for continuous auditing.

Registration is free of charge and available at https://www.sec-cert.eu/eu-sec/ws_bln8.


The Tech.eu Summit gathered over a thousand tech enthousiasts to Brussels, Belgium, on 17 May 2022. GEIGER was present at the expo hall, introducing the solution to the visitors at its booth, and giving them a sneak peak to the alpha version of the GEIGER app.

Future Events

We have achieved many exciting and interesting results during the SOCCRATES project, highlighted in many dissemination activities. At this point in time, however, the project will soon be finalized. That is why in this final SOCCRATES webinar, we want to focus on how we have exploited or plan to exploit these results, to ensure a continuous impact also after the project has ended. As a starting point, we will provide a short demonstration of the SOCCRATES pilot platform, following one of the SOCCRATES use cases.
