Using the Cloud Securely

“The Cloud” can mean different things to different people, but usually means using a service provider on the Internet to store and manage your computing systems and/or data for you. An advantage of the Cloud is that you can easily access and synchronize your data from multiple devices anywhere in the world, and you can also share your information with anyone you want. We call these services “The Cloud” because you often do not know where your data is physically stored. Examples of Cloud computing include creating documents on Google Docs, sharing files via Dropbox, setting up your own server on Amazon Cloud, storing customer data in Salesforce, or archiving your music or pictures on Apple’s iCloud. These online services can make you far more productive, but they also come with unique risks. In this newsletter, we cover how you can securely make the most of the Cloud.
