“IT personnel are often not prepared for the challenges involved in cloud security, such as full knowledge of the type of data stored in the cloud or who is accessing that data. There may be confusion about who is responsible for the security of the data stored in the cloud, who is in charge of making sure all regulations and compliance issues are met, and who manages access of the cloud.”
My gut feeling is that we – Internet users – assume that security and data protection is taken care of by the various providers who transport our data.
Wrong! They each may or may not do their part, but without security standards or international agreement about them, the possibilities are unclear and responsibilities left to chance, at best.
