We have already wrote about the possible risks of cloud computing, especially the free public cloud has issues about the end users privacy and security.
Cloud Computing Privacy : Current Scenario
Cloud Computing should be a priority for most businesses, companies and even for us, the users who are using the free Cloud Computing Services.
But are we really aware of what we do in the cloud? We need to understand the architecture of Cloud Computing, advantages and technology. Should we worry about it?
Only a couple of weeks or so we wrote in another post on cloud computing that we found interesting security issue , so we leave you today some significant numbers to carry forth your own conclusions on the privacy issues of Cloud Computing.
Stats of Cloud Computing Service Providers’ Concern
Do not forget that some of the risks associated with the cloud computing is loss of control and to be in the hands of others, access, housing management and maintenance of your data and its security.
Suppose our server Cloud Computing services is 100% safe and reliable, and even so, companies do everything they need from within to protect yourself?
Let the facts of the hand of a study by Ponemon, “Flying blind in the cloud”
As pointed out by Ponemon, over 70% Cloud Computing Providers have no strategy or policy specifically designed for security in the cloud computing, which probably indicates a lack of understanding of the challenges, threats and risks, or a total ignorance of what is Cloud computing.Advertisement
It is interesting to see only few Cloud Computing Service Providers, only 30% who take the time to evaluate the cloud computing services, while the remaining percentage states that it is able to control the end user does not have sufficient resources to carry out the assessment is not a priority or not one person in charge.
We’re really weighing the pros and cons of our security in the cloud computing?
This finding seems particularly significant in Cloud Computing, especially for marketing: 65% trust the reputation in the market for cloud computing service to be recruited.
It is true that we have a great interest in collaborating and sharing information and really we think is the best way to get ahead, but how could we not worry about our data, our personal information, our work. The information can be lost, hacked through Cloud Computing Services.
