Special Event: Cloud Computing - Risks and Rewards

Friday, 09 Aug 2013

With the rapid increase of cloud computing as a new delivery platform in Australia, what are the facts consumers must have to make a decision about whether to move to the cloud or not?  What should cloud suppliers disclose to potential users about costs, data sovereignty, privacy and security?

The Federal Government has just released a national Cloud Strategy.  In it they have called for an industry code of conduct to apply to cloud suppliers.  The ACS is leading the consultation on this code. 

Come along to the first Cloud Protocol Consultation and put your views to Government department representatives, cloud suppliers and consumers.  Your input will help shape the final policy on how cloud services are managed and marketed in Australia.

DBCDE representatives will be presenting at the workshop on their policy objectives for cloud computing in Australia and the need for a protocol on cloud supply.

Date: Monday 19 August 2013
Time: 4:45PM for a 5:00PM start
Venue: Telstra Theatrette, Level 1, 242 Exhibition Street, Melbourne.
