The paper can be downloaded from

Submissions are invited from all interested parties, including Government, Education, Industry, Business and Consumer stakeholders. 

With the explosion in consumer use of the cloud over the last 2 years, establishing a protocol which better supports government, business and consumers is an essential part of securing Australia’s digital future and ensuring the growing use of Cloud technology delivers the best possible outcome for all Australians. 

As a vendor neutral, independent, member based professional society, the ACS has been instrumental in driving the awareness of cloud issues as part of the wider National Cloud Computing Strategy. 

Submissions are able to be received until 5pm Eastern Standard time on August 19, 2013, and can be submitted to policy@acs.org.au
