One thought on “Security Threats to Cloud Storage

  1. I love the flexibility and the benefits of cloud storage but I have always been worried how easily someone else could access my account(s). It hasn’t happened and hopefully that isn’t something that I have to deal with. I also don’t have anything saved in my storage that would be detrimental if hacked or recovered by someone else.
