Provide a stable and secure platform for the NBN infrastructure

Why? In order to be trusted as important and useful data repositories, the NBN Gateway, and other data infrastructure and tools managed by NBN members, must be stable, secure and available 24/7. User expectations are that online systems should be continuously available. The protection of personal information held in databases of this kind is a legal requirement.
