security tips for cloud computing

Cloud computing service providers do their best to deal with the security problems and issues but the main part is you..yes you, because you must be smart enough not to yell out your password in public or keep the password written in a public diary somewhere. So below are a few tips that you should use regularly and you will find the security to be around 100% all the time and no one spying on your data.

Know the habitant of you information

To better secure your data, you must know where is resides…No, it doesn’t have a bungalow next to yours. The data doesn’t reside on your computer too; it resides in the dedicated hardware of the service provider. Data doesn’t often change its place that often but it surely does that sometimes. So in order to save you data, know where it resides and is it safe there? Choose a reliable source that addresses regulatory compliance, content and context.

Back it up

If you are wise enough to understand the importance of you data, never leave it on just one place and be fully dependent on that source. One of the smartest moves to make with cloud computing is to have a backup of your information at all times. This doesn’t mean you should go back to the old fashioned way, but that you should have a copy elsewhere so that you aren’t fully reliable. A very good example would be the instance of T-Mobile which did not have a backup and lost all its customer data resulting into loss of customers all over due to no backup.

Make the right choice

Having the perfect choice made, you might face quite lesser problems, but the best part is that YOU have to make that choice and not them, so go on read a few reviews find the rates, services and security issues and choose the best one for yourself. In case you find yourself on the wring end, make a change right now because if not now, when???

Have a chaos plan ready

This doesn’t mean you are going to experience a chaos anytime soon but that you should be ready come what may. You must have heard the saying, Failing to prepare is the same as preparing to fail”, so always have a plan ready. In case you experience a down server, then what you can do is not worry and follows the plan you enacted for it (if you have any). So go on make some plans for situations that might occur and have you to go through a problem.

Get a reference

Getting a reference from other clients is a pretty smart move to make in case you want to know about the other factors and problems the others are facing. Choosing the best service provide doesn’t necessarily mean that there will be no problems.
