Accelerating Public Cloud Programme

In July 2016, after consultation with agencies, new measures were confirmed by Cabinet to accelerate the adoption of public cloud services. A twelve-month programme of work is underway to implement these measures.

The Programme

The new measures confirmed by Cabinet complement existing policies and risk assessment processes and provide appropriate checks and balances.

DIA is leading an implementation programme, and working in partnership with the Government Communications Security Bureau, New Zealand Security Intelligence Services, National Cyber Policy Office, and other agencies to remove barriers by:

  • streamlining security certification
  • updating commercial frameworks
  • developing information and guidance to lift knowledge and capability within government agencies.

A presentation from the Programme Director that outlines these new measures is available, which includes a summary of the scope of the Programme: Accelerating Public Cloud Programme (pdf, 211KB)
