Integrity Systems Company recently completed a significant data infrastructure upgrade moving to Amazon Web Services (AWS).
AWS provides cloud computing platforms and data storage to individuals, companies, and governments. The National Livestock Identification System (NLIS) database will be housed within the Australian region within Amazon, guaranteeing that the data will be kept physically in Australia. ISC has no current or future plans to move data overseas.
As part of the process, ISC consulted with each state department of agriculture who have access to and use the stored data in accordance with integrity system arrangements. This consultation was focused on managing cybersecurity, data sovereignty and disaster recovery. All State Departments of Agriculture reviewed, and agreed to, the migration of NLIS to AWS.
Protecting our market access
A red meat integrity system underpinned by secure data protects the traceability and customer assurance requirements of the product we sell globally. Our strengthened data system will protect market access into the future and will also ensure our systems perform more effectively, providing a better service to our customers.
The ISC Technical team has worked extensively with stakeholders to ensure a smooth transition, however should unforeseen issues be encountered, further minor outages may be required. We appreciate your patience as we work through this necessary transition to upgrade our system to ensure there is the necessary capacity to meet future requirements.
