Good news: Cloud computing is safer than most people think

Posted by jabbar Alshuwaili on June 16, 2011

 In his blog posted on Federal Computer Week, a blogger who started his blog asking about the one who is responsible for security in the cloud, says according to Ponemon Institute’s Security of Cloud Computing Providers Study; the April 2011 report found that 69 percent of the 127 cloud providers surveyed said that cloud users are the ones responsible for security. A mere 16 percent said security should be a shared responsibility. With data like that, it’s no wonder that CIOs and IT executives wonder if their data and applications are safe in the cloud. The good news is cloud computing really is safer than most people think as long as the right controls are put into place. Most security problems are because of a lack of education, experts say.
