Mission and Vision

MEDINA project works on areas of cloud security performance and audit evidence management to create a Security Framework

Our core values: Excellence | Cloud Security certification | Continous monitoring of compliance

The MEDINA Project

The MEDINA project is an EU funded-research project working in the areas of cloud security performance and audit evidence management and its main goal is to create a Security framework for achieving a continuous audit-based certification in compliance with the EU-wide cloud security certification scheme. MEDINA consists of cyber-security and safety solutions which can be implemented by industrial and scientific users to increase their resilience to cyber threats, reduce safety risks and ensure the compliance of industrial standards.

MEDINA will tackle challenges in areas like:

Security validation



Machine-readable certification language

Cloud security performance

Audit evidence management

The main objective of the project is to provide:

A holistic framework that enhances cloud customers’ control and trust in consumed cloud services, by supporting CSPs (IaaS, PaaS and SaaS providers) towards the successful achievement of a continuous certification aligned to the EU Cybersecurity Act (EU CSA).

The proposed framework will be comprised of tools, techniques, and processes supporting the continuous auditing and certification of cloud services where security and accountability are measurable by design.

As the MEDINA framework is leveraged into a cloud supply chain, it will support continuously assessing the efficiency and efficacy of security measures to ultimately achieve and maintain a certification.
