CSC project enables service usage

Using CSC services is based on CSC projects managed in MyCSC customer portal. Each CSC project has a primary user i.e. project manager, who can add members and manages access to the services. A project manager is responsible for the project's activities and acts as the data controller (or academic organization) representative. They, for example, need to describe which type of sensitive data the project is processing.
