1) According to Eric, you have to know where your data lives and breathes. It is not enough to say you are using the cloud. You need to know where your information is and how it is being protected.
2) Always backup everything. You never know when something may become compromised. You never know when your data is going to be lost. Everything can come crashing down in the blink of an eye. You need to protect yourself.
3) Whoever is doing your cloud security needs to be reliable. According to Eric Pulier, not every center takes this seriously. There are some cloud centers who are a bit more complacent on the matter. Do not let your security be put at risk over something the cloud is not doing.
4) Test everything that your cloud service puts out. It is the only way you will know for sure your data is safe. Are you testing something new for work? Run a test on it using the cloud service you are looking into using. See how the cloud responds to it. You will know what your answer is, depending on how it responds. One test is not enough. Run multiple tests on it. It is the only way you will know for sure.
5) Get references on any cloud center or service you are thinking of using. Do not just rely on word of mouth. Get specific feedback from those who have used it.
