Good questions
At that point, once a spider has scanned and indexed the files in the cloud share, the data owner has lost the ability to control access to it; in essence, all bets are off. So, the immediate questions security teams need to know are: What was lost? Who is affected? Who is responsible? How did it get lost? Can it be prevented from happening again? All good questions, as a security expert you would be expected to know the answers tough.

Re: Frightening thought too
And also, if you are hunting, give hunting employers an entirely wrong impression of you particularly if you have MOVED as I have. Agree. Keep the information current to avoid unnecessary troubles.

Near future
At some point in the near to distant future, the information in cloud activity logs could be automatically analyzed using artificial intelligence, machine learning, or other technologies to lessen the workload of security professionals. This makes sense. It is not practical otherwise.

Re: Frightening thought too
How MUCH of your old information is OUT THERE? Good point. I would say more than we thought.

AI for logs
It makes sense to analyze logs with AI/ML then letting a human to look at it as it could not possibly be efficient at all.

Frightening thought too
How MUCH of your old information is OUT THERE?  I just reviewed my linked-in profile and I need to modify my personal bio very badly tonight.  OK, that is not vital stuff but tons of old resumes are probably on a dozen websites and from those one can learn all kinds of things.  And also, if you are hunting, give hunting employers an entirely wrong impression of you particularly if you have MOVED as I have.  (I still get job leads for 5 states away).  So consider the amount of old data you have set in place and considering changing, revision or deletion actions asap.
