Is the "Cloud" really safe?
Posted on 2012-09-01
I know this is a broad, big question, but I want some good opinions on how safe and workable the "Cloud" is. I have been resisting using the cloud and now wonder if maybe I should re-consider and start to use it. I have a lot files and information on my computer for my business and the cloud does offer a convenient way to back it all up, in addition to my normal backup methods. However, two things concern me; one is ease of use and two (most important) is it safe from hackers?, accidents?; are there enough safety measures to protect my data?
Is there data I should NEVER put on the cloud? If I decide to use the cloud, who are the safest and best providers out there?
Looking forward to your opinions so I can make a proper decision.
