Location of Cloud storage
It has become essential to know where a cloud provider stores its data and which local legislation it is subject to. This not only relates to the data centre and the data stored there, but also to the cloud provider’s head office. After all, data centres frequently make use of several locations to spread their clients’ data as efficiently as possible all over the world.
Although SME business owners often choose cloud solutions on the basis of security considerations, more than half of them do not know exactly where their privacy-sensitive information is stored in the cloud. The fact that 76% of IT decision-makers view security as their biggest worry when using cloud-based IT services is not entirely unwarranted.
Although data centres do their best to ensure that break-ins are prevented, a data leak can never be excluded. More than a quarter of companies have occasionally experienced a data leak which their cloud provider has seldom if ever been able to prevent. Often organisations wonder whether the data they have deleted has actually gone. Water-tight guarantees cannot usually be given because it is unclear where the data precisely is.
