Butler 2012 (†672)Butler, Brandon. "Gartner's State of Cloud Security: Outages are Bigger Risk Than Breaches" Network World (Network World, 14 November, 2012).
- outage : There's a perception, says Gartner cloud security analyst Jay Heiser, that the most significant risk in using the cloud is that sensitive data can be leaked. But there's been little evidence of that, he says. Sony suffered a compromise of potentially tens of millions of customers in 2011 related to its cloud, and there have been a handful of other breaches of personally identifiable information being leaked from the cloud. But more common nowadays are cloud outages and data loss, and Heiser says many enterprises are ill-prepared for those incidents. (†1537)
