In this post I contributed to for Forte Systems, I comment on data security, which remains a pressing concern both sides of the Atlantic.
“It all depends what steps your organization has taken to secure your data. Coming to the cloud can indeed improve the protection of your IT and data. The cloud can provide better data security than on premise storage as cloud providers have invested so heavily in security. However, as revelations about Prism have shown, it is not sufficient to just assume the cloud is safe. It is important to be proactive to protect business assets and data through encryption or other safeguards.”
