Your data in a cloud over India

Saturday, August 8th, 2009

How long will it be before the cloud (and possibly all of your important business data) is moved to India or somewhere else overseas? This is an important question to ask. Unfortunately, several recent articles highlight the fact that, once you put your sensitive personal and business data into the cloud, you really have no control over the physical location where that data resides. It’s very easy for large technology companies to move their entire operations and all of your critical data from one location to another. If that company later decides to move all of your data overseas to save a few bucks, who will have control over the people hired to access and maintain that data?

There is a track record of technology firms outsourcing facilities overseas to save cost and in the process taking away jobs from US employees. There are also several articles that highlight the increased security risks associated with outsourcing to companies outside of the US. Companies should be very careful as they explore online options for data storage, moving beyond the price issue to ask critical questions about data security, reliability and ease of access.

The question about data security raised by our own government begs a question, will the Obama administration make true on the promise of stopping the outsourcing of American jobs overseas?. Will those efforts also apply to facilities, manufacturing facilities and data centers? If so, there really is nothing to worry about. So far however, nothing significant has been done, leaving the door wide open for the global exporting of our nations intellectual property to any country that offers the cheapest electricity and workers.

New Flash based exploit makes internet browsing dangerous, be careful for a few days

Tuesday, July 28th, 2009

From ComputerWorld: “More than 9 out of every 10 Windows users are vulnerable to the Flash zero-day vulnerability that Adobe won’t patch until Thursday, Danish security company Secunia says. According to Secunia, 92% of the 900,000 users who have recently run the company’s Personal Software Inspector (PSI) utility have Flash Player 10 on their PCs, while 31% have Flash Player 9. (The total exceeds 100% because some users have installed both.) The most-current versions of Flash Player — 9.0.159.0 and 10.0.22.87) — are vulnerable to hackers conducting drive-by attacks hosted on malicious and legitimate-but-compromised sites. Antivirus vendors have reported hundreds, in some cases thousands, of sites launching drive-bys against Flash.”

Translation: Be very careful for the next week, don’t visit any website that you don’t trust 100%. Once the patch for Adobe Flash has been released, download and apply it as soon as possible.
