Creating a Cloud Nation

Bahrain adopted a Cloud First approach for government ministries and agencies to consider cloud computing solutions as a primary part of their information technology planning and procurement.

The Kingdom of Bahrain has a Cloud-First policy (PDF, 893KB, 11 pages) with the aim of:

  • Reducing costs of government ICT by eliminating duplication of solutions and fragmentations in the technology environment, together with leveraging the efficiencies of on-demand provisioning of ICT services.
  • Increasing security by utilising accredited platforms.
  • Increasing productivity and agility, thus improving citizen services
  • In addition to Cloud First Policy, new Data Protection and Data Jurisdiction laws are the latest advances to laws and regulations that support Bahrain digital economy. The Personal Data Protection Law outlines the specific conditions for the processing, storing and transferring of sensitive personal data, ensuring privacy and security of data at all times.
