Digital Smarts - How Safe Is the Cloud?

You are here

The recent incident of the posting of hacked celebrity photos after a iCloud software security breach, has many questioning whether the technology can ever be used safely. Proponents of the cloud counter that no technology or application is safe or unsafe in and of itself, and that taking the right precautions can greatly mitigate any vulnerabilities. Rajiv Gupta of Skyhigh Networks notes, "Look at the iCloud breach: The problem isn't that iCloud is any less safe, the problem is that someone's account credentials were stolen." This clearly shows that password vulnerability continues to be an enormous issue. What are you doing to keep your passwords safe?
