Cyber Security Weekly Podcast
Summary: Without trust, society stagnates, economies decline, and businesses fail. This podcast series keeps abreast of the latest trends and challenges in cyber and physical security with interviews, event updates, industry suppliers & government initiatives.
In this interview, Chris Cubbage talks to Rupert Taylor-Price, Founder and CEO of Vault Systems, an Australian-owned, sovereign cloud provider, for highly protected data, purpose built for the Australian government. Created to enable multiple departments share cyber security infrastructure, Vault Systems have moved into a mainstream government cloud platform, in part by the 2014 cloud-first initiative. Since then, Vault, which was founded by Rupert, has smashed expectations, and recently secured the biggest cloud deal in the history of the Australian government. Chris and Rupert discuss the process of securing government contracts, in particular, shedding light on the difference between accreditation, certification, the Information Security Registered Assessors Program, or IRAP, as well as complying to the government security standards.
