I agree anyone telling you they have a lock that cant be broken, take your buisiness elsewhere. Companies want to embrace the cloud but(and quite rightly so) have serious concerns about security.I'm with the "Don't take nude selfies and upload them" crowd. However, another commenter beat me to it. Don't post anything you want to get out. I do blame the victim a little bit, but at the same time, yes, it's hacking job.
Part of it is education. Would the general public expect some of these large companies to get data leaked out? Sony? Target? Home Depot? Microsoft didn't point fingers and go "Ha ha!" at Sony when they get hacked because they know that it could happen to them!
And holy shit are companies getting hacked left and right. At the same time, holy shit are companies we know are getting hacked are getting hacked. There's probably more that we don't know that are. Some of the hacks aren't because of an IT department or a developer missing a check. They are because someone sabotaged some equipment.
There's a story on Reddit where a teenager sent out naked pictures of herself because it made her feel sexy. She says later, as an adult, someone contacted her saying something like "You don't want those images to get out, do you?" It turns out that the boy got charged with child pornography. The woman still felt terrible from the ordeal.
The stuff you upload is on a server. Even if the data on the server gets encrypted, there is no guarantee that it would stay that way. Software has a ton of layers, and each can be breached. Companies can only try their best
......... you know you did backup or store your data online or in the cloud. .... Nothing online is private, or secure.
herein lies the problem, apple removes all choice about the cloud, and once it's online, it's FOREVER. and yes apple got hacked and they are seriously trying to deny this, the cloud is raining, and it's raining all your dirty little secrets..... if it's stored on the cloud, you're trusting someone else's security, not just your own.
this authors first mistake is assuming her data or any one elses for that matter are sacred and private, a reasonable mistake. snowden has already proven her wrong, the paparazzi in europe, london even more specifically have proven she is dead wrong. facebook...myspace.... it's even in their terms of service, everything you put on their webpages is THEIR PROPERTY.people need to first acknowledge that a person's private data is that person's private data, and that "don't take nude selfies" is neither good advice nor appropriate commentary.
