“There is no cloud… it’s just someone else’s computer.”

One of the biggest misconceptions is that the cloud is something magical

…and by the nature of thinking that “It’s In the Cloud,” assumptions are made that data in the cloud is inherently secure.

Nothing could be further from the truth and unfortunately that type of thinking results in people dropping their guard.

The cloud is just another computer or server that processes your data.

That environment needs to be secured in the same manner and same intensity as you secure the data and servers within your own data center or controlled environment.
