The cloud is going mainstream.
Many organisations are embracing cloud computing enthusiastically as a means to improve business processes while, potentially at least, making substantial cost savings along the way. Others, meanwhile, are proceeding at a more measured pace. Cautious adopters include companies that operate in heavily regulated sectors such as financial services and healthcare, as well as many government agencies and other large organisations with substantial investments in legacy IT systems and processes.
Whatever sector you work in, however, it is time to get to grips with cloud computing and, in particular, the privacy implications of cloud procurement and deployment arrangements.
