“Canberra 5 July 2013. The Attorney-General, Mark Dreyfus QC, and the Minister Assisting for the Digital Economy, Senator Kate Lundy, today released a policy for the Government’s use of cloud computing which will ensure Government agencies can take advantage of the opportunities enabled by cloud computing and the National Broadband Network while maintaining the privacy, security, integrity and availability of personal information.

“The policy will aid decision-makers in determining when to allow the use of offshoring or outsourcing on a case-by-case basis,” Mr Dreyfus said.

The policy builds on the National Cloud Computing Strategy released in May 2013. A key goal of that Strategy is that the Australian Government will be a leader in the appropriate use of cloud services.

“This Government is an enthusiastic supporter of new technology such as cloud computing, especially where it not only facilitates government business but helps us get the best value for the tax payer dollar,” Senator Lundy said.”
