However, the cost of that increased security risk has never been quantified until now, in a new report from Netskope and the Ponemon Institute.

Yeah, I've wondered about denial of service attacks and the cloud. Could cost you a bunch if you pay by the cycle . . .

I thought that the above graphic best depicted the story. I think, a user perceives it to be a greater disaster if it happened in the cloud. Almost like a hard disk crash would have been less to worry about. But who can blame them?

 

Although users are scared to blindly trust the cloud, many don't realise how much they already use the Public Cloud, and they do that without the slightest worry. It will happen in time, but not for this moment.

 

Noneheless, Dropbox is postioning to be first, which is good.

Security is a real issue even though it is true that cloud computing is just as safe as traditional systems when it comes to apparent vulnerabilities and security holes. This is because of the nature of cloud computing, the public cloud, there are a lot more people with proximity access to the data. What I mean is that compared to an in-house system where there is virtually no connection to the outside internet, the whole world will now be potentially be able to just walk up to your door, so to speak, in public cloud systems.
