Cloud Computing: Forecast Cloudy?

Great article highlighting the need for everyone to have a much higher computer/data security awareness. I am wary about cloud computing, but not against it. Just recognize that whenever data or process go outside your four walls, you lose control of security: And you'd better be very, very sure someone is picking it up. Google to a (free) blog that has great security (and other) info, ?The Business-Technology Weave?. Also, check a book we use at work, "I.T. WARS" (you can Google to it, a good part of it is available online at Google Books; Amazon too). It has a great Security chapter, and others that treat security, content management, policy, etc. Highly recommended. Great stuff.
