Stop demonizing the cloud
Security is, more often than not, a case of getting the basics right. This is certainly true of the cloud where the hyperbole surrounding insecurity far outweighs the actual risk in my opinion. Not that the cloud is an inherently secure place to store data, just that it poses similar risks to other data storage methodologies which need to be assessed and dealt with accordingly. So when I hear statistics being bandied about such as '68 per cent of employees use personal cloud storage services at work' as was thrown in my direction this last week, I cannot help but heave a little sigh.
