Securing your data on the cloud is not as safe as we like to think it is. It exposes you to lots of troubles that many often opt out for the sake of their peace and safety of data.
This is not to say that the cloud doesn’t provide us with some benefits. But, I would advise that the security on the cloud should be given as much attention as security in the cloud. A backup can do no harm. Do not rely solely on the cloud.
Rather, backup your data on physical storage. It doesn’t have to be large. It could be as small as a memory card, flash drive, hard disk, magnetic tapes, etc.
Be sure to keep them in a safe location that you can easily access should a cloud disaster occur. This way, you can rest assured that your data and intellectual properties are actually safe.
