The IT world is now changing faster than ever and businesses are rushing to put everything in to the cloud. New phrases such as “server-hugging” and “software as a service” are now heard almost everywhere. Whilst I understand that businesses are under increasing pressure to continually cut costs, the race to the cloud is not without risk. A good example of this is the recent events at Sony and Microsoft where a small number of people with what seems to be limited resources have managed to cause massive global disruption that has affected more than a million gamers. This coupled with people’s blind trust in everything that presents itself on a web-page, or in an email inbox seems to offer criminals almost limitless opportunities.
