Protection of consumer data in the cloud features highly in the Australian Computer Society’s (ACS’s) call for submissions on the federal government-backed Consumer Cloud Protocol (CCP).
That protocol grew out of the government’s May 29 launch of its National Cloud Computing strategy, and has been tasked to the ACS for management. The key goal of the CCP, according to the ACS, is “to encourage greater take-up of cloud services…by ensuring potential users of cloud services are well informed on issues such as privacy, data security, data ownership and other matters that need to be considered when choosing a cloud provider.”
Once complete, the ACS-backed protocol will be promoted to cloud providers, who will be encouraged to sign up to show their support for and adherence to its principles. The protocol is expected to be complete by year’s end.
The release of an ACS discussion paper will prompt discussions around the proposed protocol.
