PROV has released a new policy to support agencies in moving to cloud technologies.
Agencies should include recordkeeping risks when conducting a risk assessment of moving to the cloud. Particular care should be taken with placing sensitive or private information in the cloud. Cloud solutions should comply with Victorian legislation and government policy. Cloud agreements should contain terms that safeguard State information. Assistance with these requirements is contained in the guidelines for the policy.
The policy and guidelines are available from http://prov.vic.gov.au/government/standards-and-policy/policies/cloud-computing
Both the policy and guidelines have been released under a Creative Commons CC-By license.
