Confusion Surrounds Cloud Security

‘CLOUD SECURITY’ – what does this mean to people? Are we talking about security available in the Cloud – ie Security-as-a-Service – or are we talking about the security/safety of the Cloud where end users may or may not choose to store and access their data?

While the Cloud Security Roundtable was very firmly focused on the latter topic, the ambivalence of the term ‘Cloud security’ is, perhaps, a good example as to the confusion surrounding the Cloud as a whole, and Cloud security in particular. And, if there was one theme running through what proved to be a very lively and entertaining morning’s discussion, it was the existence of much misinformation and misunderstanding as to how the Cloud can or can’t be used to store data of varying degrees of importance.
