Default Do you trust cloud storage

The company I work for wants us to now backup all our data to the cloud. We work on a BOYD program and use our personal devices for work. I'm afraid of backing up my device to the cloud. I worry that my personal data will be backed up and the company will have access to all my private information.

Right now I am not sure if I trust it or not. Before I move all my data to the cloud I want to test it first. I need to understand if the security in the cloud will protect my data.

You should start separating your personal files from your work files then. Actually I have the same issue, I work online and I use Google Drive to access my daily work sheets which contains sensitive data. I know that you can use encryption to secure your data but is there a software that I can use to extensively protect my data and other documents that I use online?

Is Google Drive Secure?

Businesses using cloud services have to know where consumer data is being stored and how itís protected. When it comes to security, there is a cloud of mistrust hanging over the boardroom. But how accurate is this perception?

Well for me it is okay just separate your personal files from your work files. Right now I am using CloudDesktopOnline. This takes care of all maintenance and updates, hardware/software upgrade and backup responsibilities.

Read their TOS and chose a local cloud provider which is based in your country. A local provider will never want to break his most valuable local market and will take very much care of the data security and data consistency of your property. They are maybe a bit more expensive that the known global mass provider based in wherever, but they become your partner.

The very first thing, with cloud its totally upto you which data you are going to backup. Meaning you have full control on your own data.

Make sure to separate your personal and work data. The company you work for may provide you the logins to backup all your work data. Before proceeding check the features and roles provided by cloud storage provider then If you find everything is fair enough then proceed with the same.
