Do you have examples of why cloud computing may be risky?
One of the primary reasons for many businesses still hesitating to move their IT to the cloud computing is their fear of their data. But the myriad of benefits that cloud offers has convinced them to move some part of their IT, if not all, to the cloud. Some of the risks with cloud computing include:
1. Data is Not With the Consumer: The cloud servers are located at remote places away from the business premises. This gives them a sense of insecurity that they are not in control of their data unlike in traditional forms where the servers are in data centers.
2. Security: Security threats loom large with different types of attacks like bot malware, brute force attacks, distributed denial of service (d-dos) etc. The cyber-criminal activities too are developing with the technology and they are coming with new forms of attacks that can create major disruptions for businesses.
3 Support: Data theft and leakage of data to a competitor by disgruntled employees also is possible. Not all cloud hosting providers offer similar services.The level of support that they offer will be known only when a business needs them.
4 Connectivity: Cloud requires robust and reliable internet connection. The danger of losing internet connectivity can create havoc and panic to businesses. The connection has to be fast. There are possibilities of law enforcement agencies intrusions.
