This is a must-read article just published on Enterprise Cloud Computing Blog. It is written by Erik Heels, Partner at Clock Tower Law Group, experts in Patent Law. It spells out some very concrete concerns and questions you should ask your cloud provider:
- Both cloud computing providers and law enforcement agencies can access your files, usually more easily than if your stored the files on your own computer
- Dropbox security breach is a great example
- Cloud service providers need to do a much better job of communicating what is and what is not secure about their offerings
Give it a read and I would love to hear your feedback on the article.
