IRAP Assessed Cloud Collaboration – Platform Decisions

[Part 2/3] Keeping data secure and sovereign with IRAP assessed hosting

The IRAP Assessed Cloud Collaboration for Federal Government series is designed to leave Australian government or regulated organisations more informed on the IRAP program and the right questions to ask vendors, like Objective Connect, when it comes to protecting sensitive information that is shared externally.

In part one of the series, Trustwave, one of Australia’s predominant experts in cloud security, provided insights on the IRAP program and how an assessment can mitigate risk when selecting a cloud vendor to securely share highly sensitive information.

However, all cloud solutions are hosted with a cloud partner. For an agency not to be exposed, not only does the cloud collaboration solution have to be assessed but so does its hosting provider.

Join us for part two of the series: how an IRAP assessed hosting partner can deliver end to end protection over your sensitive data – featuring Amazon Web Services (AWS).

  • Learn why a hosting partner needs to be IRAP assessed to provide end-to-end protection over sensitive data
  • Identify the challenges government agencies face when data is kept secure and sovereign
  • Discover the reasons why hosting providers go through assessment and how it can deliver premium security to public sector
