There seem to be two groups of people out there when it comes to cloud security: There are those who believe that public clouds are systemically unsafe, and those who believe clouds are impenetrable.

They’re both wrong. Both of these myths are dangerous, and so they need to die.

Kill this myth: If my data is in a pubic cloud, it’s inherently unsafe

The thinking goes like this: Because I can’t see it or touch it, others can steal it.

The fact of the matter is that, if you take precautions—that is. spend time picking and implementing the right security services— your data in the cloud will likely be more safe than it was in the traditional system where your data came from.
