How the cloud can be used and misused
by Mirko Zorz - Editor in Chief - Tuesday, 10 June 2014.
Can we expect the cloud to make security easier in the long run or will the underground ultimately exploit it to its advantage?

Security is only as strong as its weakest link, this might be a technology or a procedure. As we connect more services to cloud based delivery this opens up a plethora of ways in which an attacker can breach the infrastructure. Additionally, cloud can be used to protect - with heterogeneous cloud based security services more data can be consumed in real time allowing faster analytics on a plethora of security issues.

Generically, a pragmatic approach is needed to security based on asset value and risk of exposure. This may be fundamentally different for a personal user than a corporate organization needing to comply with differing regulatory needs geographically. One of the key challenges is how applications and users authenticate.
