There’s an interesting response from Chris Hoff over at Rational Security to my GigaOm piece about cloud computing and security. Chris makes some great points (and flagged a good study on computer fraud that refutes some of what I said.)
Worth a read. What do you think? Are clouds less secure than in-house computing? The usual answer seems to be “it depends” — but what does it depend on? Can we come up with some rules for what’s safe to do in a cloud and when?
Maybe I can convince Chris to come to Vegas and get into a pointed argument about cloud computing risks.
