[sc:internet-category ]My last post (here) seemed likely it was timely because of recent rash of clould based announcements, however, apparently my spidey sense was tingling as we now see how who you trust your data to is REALLY important.
Dropbox recently failed big time by allowing everyone to access everything. So if you hadn’t taken precautions to secure your data with encryption before uploading it to Dropbox you just dropped your pants in front of the entire Internet.
Another million plus user id’s and passwords were hacked this week as well from Sega, how many of these are exactly the same userid/passwords these people use on their cloud services as well?
And how many more hacks have happened that companies just aren’t reporting?
Perhaps someone will finally realize that while the industry has had it’s head in the cloud, they don’t have a good foundation to build on.
