Well, we'll get one, eventually.
Remember that CLOUD is actually an acronym. It stands for "Could Lose Our
The thing with "cloud" is that it simply means "somebody else's computer." It's
not new: we've had it for years. Under the names timesharing, distributed
computing, thin client, and loads of others.
Like many "advances" in computing, people think it means what they think it
means, while vendors think it means what is easiest to do and will make them the
most money. "Cloud" *could* mean resilience, automatic backup, distributed
computing, and lots of other things that mean you have extra security (of certain
types), but it doesn't have to.
Unfortunately, as with new fads such as cyberinsurance, many people think it
means you don't have to do a risk analysis, when it actually means you have to do
*more* risk analysis.
Future projections look nebulous ...

I'll tell you what it's like to be No. 1. I compare it to
climbing Mount Everest. It's very difficult. Lives are lost along
the way. You struggle and struggle and finally you get up there.
And guess what there is once you get up there? Snow and ice.
