Worried about the security risks of moving your small business to the cloud? Torsion Information Security share their thoughts with SME Technology Guide on what steps you can take to mitigate the risks when it comes to data governance.
The cloud is revolutionising the way businesses operate but with it comes an increased IT security risk, notably a host of cybersecurity issues.
