There’s a lot of questions that sometimes go unspoken when it comes to cloud computing such as ‘how secure is my data?’ and ‘who is responsible for keeping that data secure?’. There is not one definitive answer to these questions, it is ultimately dependent on a number of varying factors. Data Backup is also an interesting area to consider. Whilst secure backups are provided by SaaS (Software as a Service) providers, are they adequate for your own business needs? Third party backup solutions to protect SaaS data are becoming more popular as clients consider the risks from cyber threats, malicious insiders and simple human error.
However, it is important that no matter how you store your data, you evaluate your responsibility to keep that data safe and secure.
