I’ve been receiving more and more inquiries from my social media circles and from clients regarding various security risks associated with using Software as a Service (SaaS): the Cloud, so I thought I’d share a few thoughts on the current status of things.
There has been a remarkable increase in self proclaimed social media everything experts on Twitter.
Many of these people have also added ‘tech’ expert to their bio and are pumping companies and professional services firms to use the “Cloud.”
The problem: most I’ve seen appear to have little or no training or experience whatsoever in computer sciences, network systems or security, yet they have somehow magically become experts within months – and have been offering “opinions” on SaaS in posts and articles they’ve written.
What’s worse, others have been ‘blindly’ listening to, RTing, and endorsing their recommendations, absent of qualifying parameters or guidance that should also be provided.
