re: NSA Data Collection Worrisome For Global Firms
Crypteron, I agree with what you are saying. These things all help. However, the problem I see is that, encrypted or not, they have your data. If they want it. With enough resources and the will....well, who knows. Is the public cloud really that compelling of an option? Why risk it?
