Governments across ASEAN are increasingly recognizing the benefits of cloud computing technologies in driving innovation and productivity, and enhancing the speed, scale, and scope of digital public services, while improving security and realizing cost and time
efficiencies. Similarly, in the private sector, businesses including SMEs are tapping into cloud technologies to take advantage of cost savings, data storage solutions, and greater flexibility and continuity.
Underpinning the successful operationalization and deployment of cloud computing is the seamless flow of data, allowing the benefits of economies of scale and scope to be realized more fully. However, across ASEAN, data related policies are becoming more restrictive and
inward looking, with increasing regulatory divergence in the requirements for cross border transfers.
This 90-minute session will bring together experts from government, industry, and academia to discuss international best practices, and experiences in developing an enabling environment for cloud adoption and deployment. Discussions will also focus on the role of
international standards (e.g. ISO 270017 on security controls and ISO 27018 on protection of personally identifiable information in public clouds) in promoting trust and interoperability, and facilitating digital trade across ASEAN.
This event is jointly organised and supported by Access Partnership and the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) as part of the Australian Government funded ASEAN Australia Digital Trade Standards Initiative.
