Cloud storage perks and cons
Cloud storage has its pros and cons and when it is being utilized on a large scale by organisations, they ought to review the security aspects of it. The amount of data that is being uploaded online is massive and they should be noted that, that particular set of data is actually going to remain in the digital realm for good. If they are willing to grasp this concept, then only should they utilize the cloud facility, else they should really just stick to traditional data storage means.

Re: Security practice
Gee, what a surprise?  Hackers using the cloud, imagine that.  Give them ANY open door and they are happy to enter any way they can.  The cloud, long vaunted, is one such door.  Anybody remember the words of dear WOZniak ages ago - there is NO security in the cloud.  A lamented savant of the truth.

Security practice
Are you really surfside that people would try to do this with a cloud-based storage system? Of course there are hackers everywhere who are going to try and get all of this information out of the cloud to use for their own advantage! We just need to take that information and translate it into better security practices!
