I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Cloud Computing will never be as safe as in-house for the following reasons:

1.  You don't know where your data resides (different government jurisdictions could apply as data might be in a different state/country)
2.  You could be potentially exposed (Microsoft and/or Amazon would be a bigger target to attack than a little guy)
3.  Multiple IT staff could have access

It is getting safer and in some cases (majority of cases when compared to small/medium businesses) as their infrastructure is more robust and scalable as well as remote access is provided.
