Rights to Information/Open Data/Data Sharing

Cloud policies are the guidelines under which Government agencies operate in the cloud. They ensure the integrity and privacy of company-owned information. This could be a subset of the Data protection act or a separate policy.

Part of PNG’s commitment to the Open Government Policy.  Policy is overdue and got delayed by COVID-19.
