Six Tips for Keeping Enterprise Data Secure in Cloud Storage

By Brian Prince

Storing data in the cloud has brought with it its own set of compliance and security concerns -- something underscored recently by a survey by Unisys. The survey revealed that 51 percent of the 312 respondents cited security and data privacy as their top concern regarding cloud data storage. While experts say the public cloud may be ready for certain applications, organizations need to be sure those apps are secure -- and that they can prove it when questioned by auditors.

Here are few of the questions and considerations you should take to your service provider.
