Too much is too little
The problem with shared responsibility is that when it's everyone's repsonsibility, it's no one's responsibility.

There needs to clearly be a party with clear responsibility; otherwise, everyone will shrug things off to each other.

Sensitive Data
I find it concerning that "Some 52 percent of organizations that use offshore providers, or whose data might be hosted at an offshore location, do nothing to ensure the vendor is in compliance with relevant security and privacy requirements," and "Less than four in 10 leverage security tools to protect enterprise applications and data in the cloud." Another Ponemon study "The State of Data Security Intelligence," reported that "Data that is outsourced to cloud is the biggest worry."

Gartner released the report "Simplify Operations and Compliance in the Cloud by Protecting Sensitive Data" in June 2015 that highlighted key challenges as "cloud increases the risks of noncompliance through unapproved access and data breach." The report recommended CIOs and CISOs to address data residency and compliance issues by "applying encryption or tokenization," and to also  "understand when data appears in clear text, where keys are made available and stored, and who has access to the keys." Another recent Gartner report concluded that "Cloud Data Protection Gateways" provides a "High Benefit Rating" and "offer a way to secure sensitive enterprise data and files stores of data and use cases.

Modern tools can at least secure sensitive data before sending it to cloud.

Security through Ambiguity?
To date, cloud has become more and more prevalent in the business sector to the point where businesses can no longer play dumb. Cloud can be discerned and analyzed and this is why its alarming that only 17% of the poll stated that security had a role in their cloud roll out. This is also why its imperative for security to have a seat at the table during business decisions. The cloud can handle data in a variety of walls, most if not all of which involve not storing your data on premise which has inherent security risks. Security needs to have their eyes on cloud implementations from start to finish.  (Title riddled with sarcasm)
