Matt Dunning quotes me in his article, “Risk management strategy must be in place before moving data to the cloud.”

Cloud computingMatt Dunning wrote an article for Business Insurance discussing potential risks and risk management techniques that companies consider when making the move to the cloud.

The lede is:

Companies using cloud computing to supplement or replace in-house data storage systems without a cohesive risk management strategy can expose themselves to substantial financial losses and reputational harm, cyber risk experts say.

Matt was kind enough to quote me in the piece.  I discuss insurance coverage for the cloud and cloud-based risks.  You may have to register with Business Insurance to see that part of the article.

The article has interesting points for risk managers, as well as compliance and IT personnel that are considering moving data, software, operations, or more to the cloud.  Please click on over and read the entire piece.
