Hey guys,

I am looking for someone who knows the ins and outs of the NZ Government SaaS 'cloud' security requirements. If you know anyone in Wellington I would appreciate it!

You should talk to the GCSB or any partner involved with AOG

No...they will forward your request onto their bosses - one of the American spy agencies for comment ;-)

I am sure there are RFP's you can look into that might give you a rough idea of what to look for.

The privacy commissioner has a guide to cloud computing pamphlet which seems to be widely used.
We host online backups for many clients around hawkes bay, and soon will also have a government offering. Lawyer clients have all presented us with the pamphlet as a challenge to my sales skills - to which i say HaHa your colleague across the road challenged me with it yesterday which we passed its requirements.

Anyhow that would be where i would start.
There are also a couple of organisations which i cant remember what they are called but they are trying to create a heart foundation approval tick equivalant for cloud service providers. I looked at the website and their complicated guidelines and decided to not bother as it just seemed like it wouldnt really give the recognition needed.

Here ya go
http://privacy.org.nz/assets/Files/Brochures-and-pamphlets-and-pubs/OPC-Cloud-Computing-guidance-February-2013.pdf

Its mostly geared to cloud applications such as xero / freshbooks type applications so would probably work for you as a starting point.
