You Know Cloud Security Is An Issue When . . .

It’s not often that matters that fall into the techy-wonk category make the editorial page of the NY Times.  So, it’s noteworthy that the lead editorial in yesterday’s Times expressed many of the commonly cited security and privacy concerns and risks associated with cloud computing.   The commentary was by no means of the doom-and-gloom variety and could be viewed as both a validator that the cloud is now just about as mainstream as any technology phenomenon — if the recent fanfare around Apple’s announcement of iCloud or the seemingly ubiquitous “Cloud with Confidence”  commercials by Cisco, among many other things, hasn’t already made that evident — and a harbinger of even more regulatory focus on ensuring online privacy and security, which has been simmering now for quite a while.
