CIO Canada Debate on Cloud Computing
ONLINE PRIVACYDecember 9, 2011
Part four of the five-part ITWorldCanada series "CIO Canada Debate," explores chief information officers' attitudes on cloud computing. "They understand that cloud computing could bring cost savings and efficiencies, but some...still aren't ready to open up the processes and data to third parties," the report states. CIOs weigh in, including one who says the lack of standards is what prevents him from moving toward the cloud, and another who feels the privacy and security issues surrounding cloud adoption are overblown. "I think you should approach this as you would any data security or privacy issue," says Innovapost's David Rea. "You've got encryption, you've got (to look at) who has access to the data."
