The second risk of cloud computing is that lack of control – how can you ensure the physical security of your devices if you have no control? What about patch and vulnerability management if you are getting platform or software as a service from your provider? Do they ensure your systems are up to date and as secure as they can be? No systems are 100% secure; there is no silver bullet, but you need to know what they do for you and what responsibilities you have to keep your systems safe. Don’t fall into the trap of thinking that because you’re on the cloud your security will be looked after, too. In fact for most cases many platforms state that security is the sole responsibility of the customer, not the platform provider.
