It's time to consider seriously moving to the cloud. Prices are falling, and it could well compare competitively with your plans to increase your technical estate. The truth is; you are only going to get more data.
Have you considered the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which comes into effect in May 2018. Under GDPR organizations in breach of GDPR can be fined up to 4% of annual global turnover or €20 Million (whichever is greater).
This isn't a joke - there are no funnies here. Your data is serious, and critical to your business.
What does this mean? Have you made sure that you are insulated against data breaches? What does this mean for your business? Could moving to the cloud make your data safer? Do you have a risk management strategy?
