In this podcast, Sarah and Craig discuss the different types of cloud computing and risks to companies using this technology.
The lack of access to your data and placing your data and technological capabilities in the hands of others is a risk for companies using cloud computing.

Craig questions whether the cloud providers allow access to conduct a forensic examination to identify the problem or would companies merely have to take their word for it.
