Cloud Security

In the past few years,'cloud' has become a bit of a buzzword. The meaning to many people is ambiguous, but regardless, the hype behind the word continues to grow. Each year more companies are intrigued by the efficiency of accessing data from many different locations, as well as having all that vital information stored in one place. However, because it IS so accessible that of course raises the question, 'How secure is my information?'.

Gartner, a technology research and advisory firm, predicts that by 2015, 10 percent of IT security capabilities will actually be delivered by the cloud, and by 2016 the public cloud infrastructure will be subject to considerably tighter regulations by the government.Combined with the growth of the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) movement, the cloud will ensure that data and network security will be in the spotlight in the near future. The issue of safety, as well as the anticipation of Cloud's success, shows that over the next few years we can expect to see security evolve and change.

With so many companies moving towards the cloud, how will the impact the future of our data?
