Offsite Storage
This is an interesting breach because it was related to a specific employee who had their information intercepted which seems to be less common these days. Regardless, this is the situation and thankfully there are smart people and organizations doing what they can to protect companies. Think it has also become obvious that nothing is ironclad - -but things are much better than they have ever been.

When it comes to Cloud storage, you should visit<a href="http://www.logicworks.net">LogicWorks</a> and read the case studies. It is interesting to learn about the challenges they have addressed with custom solutions. No two companies have the same needs, so it is always nice to see that there are service providers out there catering to the needs of the customer.

Offsite Storage Provider Breach
For what it is worth, all backups that are stored offsite should be encrypted. Article does not say if they were but if not that would have prevented this from happening. Offsite vendor as well as customer should demand this to cover all involved.
