Stop the FUD (Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt) !!

Dan Morrill! Count me in !!

In his excellent article, “Cloud Computing is Scary – But the FUD Has to Stop“,  Dan makes some excellent points:
  • It is time to start embracing where business is going, and trying to make sure that they are doing it in the safest way possible.
  • What security professionals need to be doing rather than creating their own FUD is work out ways to make it safer.
  • While we might struggle with new technology, it is time for information security folks to step up to the plate and get smart on how the technology works, what the risks are, and how those risks can be reasonably addressed by good security solutions. 
  • There are some great resources for good information, Cloud Ave is one of them, but trend micro, IBM, Google, Amazon, Microsoft, Oracle and others who have all figured out that this can be a very neat technology and help companies expand and contract according to business need and market conditions.
