Connventional IT wisdom says that you’re safer and more secure when you control your own on-premises data center. Yet if you think about every major data breach over the last two years, whether Anthem, Sony, JPMorgan or Target, all involved on-premises data centers, not the cloud.
In fact, if a cloud service has proper controls, it could be safer than running your own data center. Amazon, Google, Sales force and Box to a company have much more at stake when it comes to security. A breach could prove devastating to their businesses.
That could be why it’s hard to come up with a major security involving a cloud provider. Other than the Jennifer Lawrence photo breach and the subsequent celebrity leaks, it’s hard to think of anything on the magnitude of those high-profile hacks involving the cloud. It could simply come down to a feeling of control. When you run your data center on-premises, you feel like you’re safer, but are you?
First of all, aside from a few exceptions, most companies simply don’t put the resources into security that a cloud company does.
Their business is not about security, at least not directly, and it’s usually not the first priority for a CEO looking at the bottom line. While a high profile hack is embarrassing and creates a lot of economic fall-out, the primary purpose of the business is about servicing customers.
