From OGCIO: Practice Guide for Procuring Cloud Services - useful reference for the IT-related organisations

  1. The Office of the Government Chief Information Officer (OGCIO) of the HKSAR Government established the Expert Group on Cloud Computing Services and Standards in 2012 with an aim to draw expertise from the industry, academia, professional bodies and the Government to drive cloud computing adoption and deployment in Hong Kong. Under the Expert Group, there are three Working Groups focusing on key perspectives of cloud adoption, namely interoperability and portability, security and privacy, and provision and use of cloud services.
  2. In the past year, the Expert Group together with the three Working Groups have produced a variety of reference resources for the local community, accessible through the portal InfoCloud (www.infocloud.gov.hk) of the HKSAR Government. Amongst the reference resources, the Practice Guide for Procuring Cloud Services is targeted for local companies, in particular SME users to assist them in understanding cloud computing and how it may bring benefit to them, while at the same time how to evaluate and consider some of the risks associated with incorporating cloud computing into their business operations. The Practice Guide, structured in the form of 9 key areas can be downloaded through the URLs below:

Elections (Corrupt and Illegal Conduct) Ordinance (ECICO) (Cap. 554) enforced by the ICAC


Dear Sir / Madam,

The coming Chief Executive (CE) Election will be held in March 2012. Similar to other public elections, the CE Election is also regulated by the Elections (Corrupt and Illegal Conduct) Ordinance (ECICO) (Cap. 554) enforced by the ICAC.

Apart from the candidates and their election helpers who should abide by the laws and regulations, their supporters (including individuals or organisations) should also understand the legislation and avoid any inadvertent contravention of the law.

As an "Umbrella Organisation" in your subsector, your members might have been elected to the Election Committee or act as active supporters of the candidates in the CE Election. The ICAC has prepared the attached "Reminder to Candidates" Supporters which is aimed at helping the supporters avoid inadvertent breaches of the law while electioneering for the candidates.

I am writing to enlist your support to bring it to the attention of your members. The reminder has also been uploaded onto the following dedicated website : www.icac.org.hk/elections

Should you have any enquiries, please contact me at 2899 3931 or Ms Debbie LY at 2899 3937.

Thank you for your support in upholding clean elections in Hong Kong.

Regards,

Willis WONG
Senior Community Relations Officer
ICAC

IPv6World.Asia - After World IPv6 Day, what's next?

Date: 2 Sep 2011 (Friday)
Time: 2pm - 5pm
Venue: Function Room, Core E, Cyberport 3,100 Cyberport Road, Hong Kong (free shuttle bus from Admiralty to Cyberport will be arranged)

Event website: here

REGISTER HERE: here

On World IPv6 Day (June 8th 2011), top content providers such as Google, Yahoo, Facebook and more than 1000 participating websites joined together for a successful global-scale trial of the new Internet Protocol, IPv6. This is the first ever largest IPv6 deployment in the world. By providing a coordinated 24-hour "test flight", the event helped demonstrate that major websites around the world are well-positioned for the move to a global IPv6-enabled Internet, enabling its continued exponential growth.

A key goal of World IPv6 Day was to expose potential issues with real-world IPv6 use under controlled conditions. Given the diversity of technology that powers the Internet, the global nature of the trial was crucial to identify unforeseen problems. The vast majority of users were able to access services as usual, but in rare cases, users experienced impaired access to participating websites during the trial. After World IPv6 Day, then the question is "what's next?". We are pleased that speakers from Google, Yahoo and Hurricane Electric, who did the actual IPv6 deployment work on World IPv6 Day, will come to Hong Kong and share with us their valuable experience, including how they planned for World IPv6 Day, operational issues, deployment problems, security issues and transition mechanism.
