Although they are the most secure thing to protect $$’s of information still any intelligent one can get through those. If your information is also on the cloud, security for it is easily minimized.
- Security risks at the Vendor: If you use the cloud for your business, and they are controlling your whole website and database. This means your whole life is in their hands as they have your mailing list, your payment information, and many other things, they can easily pass through and use the information.
- Lack of Control: We don’t have any control over the data we have stored over the cloud, like on a physical device, we can store the data where we want, how we want, and more. But in the cloud, we are not having any type of control over the same.
- Availability Risks: Although all the cloud services say they are going to be 24 hours online, but if any unfortunate crash happens, then it will be difficult for you to access the same, till they are back to service. This happens to be the scariest moment.
