Whole-of-government Hosting Strategy

We live in an age where government functions, from policy development to program implementation and service delivery, use data captured digitally.

Australians expect government to leverage innovative technologies to continually improve services for the community. Australians also expect government to protect their personal data and to deliver digital services that can be trusted.

The government has made significant investments in safeguarding the security and privacy protection of government-held data. Cornerstones of this secure environment are data centres and associated infrastructure.

This strategy provides policy direction and guidance applicable to the Australian Government hosting ecosystem including facilities and infrastructure. It is supported by a clear roadmap to deliver the outcomes described in this strategy.

This strategy supports the government’s commitment to privacy, security and resilience, while improving the delivery of government services.
