Cloud Infographic: Information Security Workforce
Peter Azzopardi's insight:

Great Infographic! "While cloud means many things to different people, so does the term security. In discussions with business and industry experts, security concerns really boil down to the classic CIA—now CIAA—triad: confidentiality, integrity, availability and the more recently appended “audit”."

Beware IT pros who blame BYOD for their own failings

Beware IT pros who blame BYOD for their own failings | Cloud Central | Scoop.it
A user gets access to a server he shouldn't have access to and triggers a misconfiguration that posts private data to the Web. Whose fault is that?
Peter Azzopardi's insight:

.... losses continue from the traditional venues IT doesn't seem able to address, such as insider attacks, lost thumb drives (ironically, because IT won't support cloud storage), and lost or stolen unencrypted laptops (ironically, because IT often doesn't protect PCs, where most sensitive data is used, but obsesses over mobile devices).
