Some good advice from dynamicbusiness.com.au for small businesses using the cloud:
Its safe to say that small businesses love the cloud its cheap, easy to use, spacious and reachable from every corner of the world with internet access. The degree of cloud adaptation among small organizations is restricted by the problem of security every time we witness a scandal of leaked information or photos, the press tends to foreground the loopholes of cloud privacy and the danger involved in storing files on external servers.
- Assess the risks and choose data to store
- Read user agreements with store providers carefully
- Mind your passwords
- Go for two-factor authentication whenever you can
- Always backup your data
It’s always better to be safe and take extra precaution than be sorry you took shortcuts with your data security.
