  • 1. Cloud computing and privacy - developing some strategies - a government perspective CROWN COPYRIGHT © Clifton Chan 21 May 2010
  • 2. What is cloud computing?
  • 3. Undefinition “The network is the computer” -- John Gage, Sun Microsystems, 1982 “... computing may someday be organized as a public utility ...” -- John McCarthy, 1961
  • 4. Definition “a computing capability that provides an abstraction between the computing resource and its underlying technical architecture (e.g., servers, storage, networks), enabling convenient, on- demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction.” -- NIST
  • 5. Characteristics  On-demand self-service  Broad network access  Resource pooling  Rapid elasticity  Measured service -- NIST
  • 6. Services  Software as a Service  Platform as a Service  Infrastructure as a Service  “Stack” of services
  • 7. Types  Public clouds  Community clouds  Private clouds  Hybrid clouds
  • 8. Potential Benefits  Fast deployment – low entry barriers • Self provisioning/de-provisioning • Pay for what you use  Minimum/no capital • No large capital investment  Quality/value-for-money • Access large economies of scale • Access sustainable centres of practice • Access better services
  • 9. Paradigm It is a form of outsourcing.
  • 10. Why the fuss? We outsource all sorts of things, e.g.:  Mainframe bureaus  Payroll bureaus  Watering plants  Office cleaning  Helpdesks
  • 11. Fuss:  Data is likely to be overseas • Outside your organisation • Outside NZ jurisdiction  Multi-tenant • 100’s – 1000’s of organisations • 1,000,000’s of users  The network is often the Internet
  • 12. Accountability When you outsource you are still legally accountable
  • 13. Strategies
  • 14. Outsourcing  Risks and costs vs benefits  Privacy is a risk • Different profile with cloud computing  Are you ready for outsourcing?
  • 15. Privacy  Privacy Impact Assessment  Classify and value your data  Status of data  NZ law / NZ provider  Align cloud type to risks/data-value  Favourable terms of Exit  Monitor usage / contract  Stay informed
