I recently had the opportunity to author an article for CMSWire discussing the importance of privacy and data security strategies when moving to the cloud.
Technology is changing so rapidly that keeping up with the associated worldwide privacy challenges reminds me of a quote from the White Rabbit in Alice in Wonderland: “Here we must run as fast as we can, just to stay in place!”
The cloud is one of those rapidly evolving spaces. Major data breaches seem to be in the news almost every week now.
Once you think you understand the privacy landscape, a new breach can crop up and add a new issue. Not only does this impact the individuals whose data is exposed, but it also affects the companies that are responsible for the data breaches.
These events can be extremely costly financially, and may even result loss of reputation or job. Privacy and data security has now firmly become a board-level issue.
So is hosting your data, applications or even your infrastructure in the cloud a viable alternative?
