The Cloud is inherently more secure and resilient than any communication and storage medium we have created before, but only if we exploit the new degrees of freedom for fixed, mobile, sporadic, visible and invisible modes of operation. Not all clouds are equal and neither is all data, and parsed storage, anonymity, and unpredictable communication can also be augmented by multiple disconnected providers.

The era of IT Departments providing centralized networking and security is drawing to a close and it is time to think anew our operations to improve efficiency, security and resilience. We should be judging the merits of outsourced Cloud provision and preparing to embrace the considerable opportunities presented by a growing BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) culture.
