How secure is cloud computing?

I have been having a lot of conversations about how secure Cloud computing is or isn’t. I have given briefings to our Audit Committee. One of my points has been that in many cases it can be more secure than traditional IT infrastructure.

Conventional wisdom says clouds are inherently insecure.

But are they? Or are clouds actually more secure than conventional IT environments? A growing number of technologists are making that argument. And they’re not cloud vendors or marketers or startups who have placed their bet on the cloud. They’re some of the senior-most technology officials in government, including those from intelligence agencies and the military, which might be the last place you’d expect to hear such talk.
