It is likely that readers of this blog know where I stand on cloud storage. I have been fairly outspoken against the practice of storing personal data in the cloud. Unfortunately, I realize this may be an untenable solution for many who desire – or even require – the ability to use and access cloud storage. Even I had a personal experience recently that made me re-think the utility of cloud storage. Cloud storage does offer the benefit of being a strong hedge against data loss. Losing data can be crippling for an individual, and even more so to a small business. With these factors in mind (and at the request of a reader) I have taken a look at some cloud providers and developed some cloud storage threat models.
