New Article: Keeping Your Data Safe in the Cloud
Industry buzz seems to come in waves, doesn't it? Some days all you hear about is social media--and today, the day of Facebook's much-talked about IPO, you'd think that would be the case. But at Idealware, we're talking about the cloud.
Last month we helped our friends at NTEN with a report on the State of the Nonprofit Cloud. As part of our continuing research, we're wrapping up a followup report about organizations using the cloud for infrastructure. And we're moving ahead with research into moving back office functions to the cloud.
So it seems appropriate to share a new article with you today about keeping your data safe in the cloud.
"Many organizations question the security of information kept in the cloud. The internet can be a dangerous place for data, but no more so than your own computer, where your data faces many of the same threats—in fact, a good cloud storage vendor is likely to protect your data better than you’d reasonably be able to do on your own. With a little planning, it’s possible to take advantage of the benefits offered by the cloud while making sure your organization’s data is as safe as is practically possible."
It ran in a different version in the March 1 issue of The NonProfit Times, You can read that version here.
