Hosting Certification Framework Information Sessions

2 December 2021

You’re invited to attend the Digital Sourcing Network online event: Hosting Certification Framework Information Session 


You are invited to attend the DTAs Digital Sourcing Network online event: Hosting Certification Framework Information Session. 

The Hosting Certification Framework is integral to protecting Australian Government systems and the data they hold. It provides guidance to Australian Government departments and agencies enabling them to identify and source hosting services that meet enhanced privacy, sovereignty, and security requirements.   

The Hosting Certification Framework has significant benefits to government and industry and operationalises the principles outlined in the Whole-of-Government Hosting Strategy.  

Under the Hosting Certification Framework, all high-value government data, Whole-of-Government systems, and systems rated at the classification level of PROTECTED, should be hosted within certified data center facilities and by certified service providers by 30 June 2022. 

Government entities continue to have the autonomy to select the best hosting arrangements for their requirements.
