Cloud Computing

A little bit about cloud computing

The day has arrived when you don't need to store a single thing on your device – folders, files, documents, application programs – everything is easily available by high speed Internet and powerful web browsers.

Cloud computing allows people to use any device they wish at any time and still always access everything they need through the Internet.

There are a few cloud computing safety risks to be aware of:

  • In addition to the online protection already discussed, you should become familiar with your service contract as it relates to cloud computing and online servers.
  • Just as an example: your data could be stored in one or more foreign countries – find out which ones, since your data will then be subject to that country's or countries' laws.
  • You've taken measures to keep your data safe and secure – make sure your cloud service provider is also enabling the strongest and most current security available to protect your data.
