Cloud computing standards taskforce
Tay said that IDA has worked with Singapore's Information Technology Standards Committee to set up a cloud computing standards co-ordinating task force in February 2011.
The task force, which comprises representatives from IDA, ITSC, Singapore Computer Society, Singapore Infocomm Technology Federation, Information Technology Management Association as well as industry sectors, work on guidelines for various cloud issues with inputs from the industry.
"Arising from the effort, the task force has developed two Technical Reference documents which are available to the public - one that provides best practices for server virtualisation security, and the other on guidelines on cloud security and service level for public cloud services' users," he said.
