Cloud Computing- Moving data to cloud does not transfer liability to protect it

It’s a common misconception that by moving to the cloud or relying on a third-party cloud service provider to process and store data that the full responsibility to protect it falls in the vendor.  Not so! The data is still your data and your potential liability.

It is critical to perform due diligence when selecting cloud vendors and/or applications, and due care when moving into the cloud.
