With more and more businesses moving their information to the cloud, companies must remember that they still have a responsibility for their data.
Using the cloud to store data is efficient for a number of reasons - less time and money is spent on data management than physical storage, as well as secure data recovery.
However, the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) is concerned that many business managers do not realise that the data they hand over to the cloud is still their responsibility.
Whether the data is looked after on the cloud or in the companies own physical storage system, the company still has a responsibility to protect the data, prohibiting the chances of data loss or theft.
"As a business, you are responsible for keeping your data safe. You can outsource some of the processing of that data, as happens with cloud computing, but how that data is used and protected remains your responsibility," ICO technology policy advisor Dr Simon Rice said.
Data is at the core of most modern businesses. Kroll Ontrack provides services and software to help you better manage key data such as MS Exchange and SharePoint.
