What ramifications will businesses and Apple itself face following the celebrity leaks.
The dust has barely begun to settle following the massive celebrity 'nude photo' leak over the weekend, yet allegations and claims are flying here, there, and everywhere.
Fingers are being pointed at suspect iCloud security despite no concrete evidence of exactly how theimages became public in the first place (that is, apart from the original 'leakers' confession of obtaining the images from iClouds)
This breach, no matter who to blame, ultimately still alerts businesses to the risk of cloud storage, but this unforunate opportunity should be used to highlight areas where improvements can be made and cloud security awareness can be heightened. Alex Raistrick, from Palo Alto Networks comments: "The recent scandal involving leaked photos of celebrities stolen from Apple's iCloud storage facility serves to highlight that security is still one of the greatest barriers preventing cloud computing from reaching its full potential. However, amid the negativity there are now more opportunities than ever for channel partners who specialise in cloud security to move in and toughen up security, particularly on previously 'trusted' platforms."
