Re: Two weeks of unnecessary exposure?
@Charlie: Chalk that up, I suspect, to a combination of bureaucracy and "CYA" processes. ;)

Re: Complexity

When bean counters become Engineers we all suffer.  And when assessing risk it becomes a little less risky when it's someone else's data.  The good part is that eventually we will all have so much data stolen that it won't matter because we will all be owned.  Reboot the Matrix.

Two weeks of unnecessary exposure?
It took Upguard five days to notify Verizon, and it took Verizon nine more days to close the public access. or 14 days of additional exposure -- longer than necessary, by both parties?

So Soon?
This may be a coincidence, but our logs show that, last night, our website was hit by hackers, all running the same optimistic hack script (""POST /xmlrpc.php"), from these addresses: 184.72.209.94 Amazon.com; United States 34.203.28.190 Amazon.com; United States 34.207.145.30 Amazon.com; United States 34.210.21.112 Amazon.com; United States 34.227.111.122 Amazon.com; United States 34.227.65.182 Amazon.com; United States 35.154.154.10 Amazon.com; Amazon Data Services 52.201.248.46 Amazon.com; United States 54.175.234.31 Amazon.com; United States 54.187.35.209 Amazon.com; United States 54.71.24.41 Amazon; United States 54.90.130.226 Amazon.com; United States I suspect that those user credentials are being used by at least one party.

Complexity
Cloud evangelists love to talk about how the cloud can reduce complexity -- and it truly can.

But, in doing so, cloud also introduces its own form of complexity -- which can lead to lesser security, lesser data privacy, lesser compliance, and other revenue-impacting bugaboos. Migration is its own complex task. In many ways, it can be a trade-off -- with the idea that the gains in the long run will supersede the complexity costs of migration...but that sure doesn't erase those costs altogether!
