Experts warn of risk to cloud storage amidst growing cyber threat [Asian News International]

(Asian News International Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Washington, Nov. 7 (ANI): With more businesses storing their crucial data on virtual spaces, security experts have reportedly warned that with lack of security measures, the cloud data is as prone to cyber attack risk as any other data.

A new study by Georgia Tech Information Security Center (GTISC) and the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) indicates that few businesses seek heightened data protection because of concerns that usability and access to remote data would be significantly reduced.

Director of GTISC, Wenke Lee said that with recent revelations of data collection by the federal government, the institute will continue to see a focus on cloud security, adding that encryption in the cloud often impacts data accessibility and processing speed.

The study shows that even though designers of mobile devices and tablets have developed a robust ecosystem to prevent large-scale device compromises, the threat of malicious and potentially targeted use remains.

Director of GTRI's Cyber Technology and Information Security Laboratory (CTISL), Bo Rotoloni explained that no matter how successful security experts have been, black hat operatives will continue to attack infrastructure at every angle possible, making cyber security a global issue for years to come.
