Sounds backwards, doesn’t it? Typically, the most logical answer for what to do with your most sensitive data is to keep it locked up and held close to your chest. The least likely place to put sensitive data is in the public cloud.

How can I possibly trust the cloud to keep my application and my data secure?

But traditional wisdom doesn’t apply here. In fact, the safest place to keep your most sensitive data may, in fact, be in the public cloud.
