Kidsoft’s data is moving to a new home. We’re getting ready to migrate our Kidsoft data to a new hosting platform Amazon Web Services (AWS) housed in Sydney, Australia. Our current platform has served us well; however the new platform has been designed to allow for future growth and enhanced security. Childcare data held within FOFMS/CCMS (and potentially its replacement) is considered to be both ‘Personal’ information and ‘Protected’ information (as defined in A New Tax System (Family Assistance) (Administration) Act 1999). AWS adheres to the Australian Government cloud policy and has passed the accreditation process with the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) and Information Security Manual (ISM).
The move to our new AWS hosting platform will be phased over the next few weeks. You probably won’t notice it happening, as we are moving data at times when customers are least likely to be affected. This will ensure little to no downtime to our customers. Should you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact the Kidsoft team.
