The Balancing Act Of Cloud Versus Risk
Published by IT Web, DRS talks about the ever-changing realities and risks of cloud services. In this article, Managing Director of DRS, MJ Strydom, reveals staggering statistics from large corporations that indicate an upward trend of cloud offering hacks; be it system, software or platform.
Strydom provides practical advice for business owners and CIOs alike looking for a current view of the cloud services arena and what to look out for. He offers insight into three danger zones: “the insider” providing a case study that cost Amazon Web Services over R100 million dollars; “sharing is caring, or is it?” a look into the power a personal email address and anyone with a link really has; and “cloud perception versus deception” in which Strydom throws the onus-ball into the users’ court when it comes to understanding cloud service offerings.
