Where is your Data – Find out why it matters

Posted by in Cloud,Security | April 29, 2013

We’ve entered an amazing age. Not only can clients and consumers interact with you digitally in real time, but they can do it from their computers, smartphones and tablets; at the office or at home from virtually anywhere on the planet.

Interconnectivity is now the driving force behind the world economy, but it can also be one of your greatest threats. Your data is the key to your clients’ fortunes, and any threat to its privacy is a risk that you have to manage.

Depending on where your servers are located you could be putting the privacy and security of that data in peril. With the advent of cloud computing, authorities have increased difficulty identifying where offending data is stored. The laws of each country or jurisdiction determine how protected your data and hardware will be.
