Security is the greatest barrier towards adoption of the cloud. Unfortunately, improvements in cloud security won’t be seen as a priority until a major breach has a significant enough impact on one or more cloud service vendors and customers. That needs to change. When it comes to cloud security, it is the end-user’s duty to understand what processes and methodologies the cloud vendor is using to protect the customer’s most sensitive assets. We don’t want the Government’s ‘G Cloud’ to be compromised – that would be a public humiliation that would have cloud doubters in their own little heaven.
