An interesting article based upon facts when it comes to cloud security versus on premise security of data. The article provides a bit more insights in the different security breaches found within the US Department of Health and Human Services. The report published by this institution shows the number of people or individuals being “harmed” directly or indirectly by those breaches. The report states that out of roughly 5 million patients, 166 were affected.
The interesting part is when looking at cloud solutions provided by the different cloud vendors, none of these providers are even close in having same amount of breaches encountered so far. Facts are facts and do not say anything about the future but it does tell a lot about the current implementation state and so far it is looking good.
Have a look at the article in better understanding why cloud is secure and why cloud is a good thing.
