Today Google Provides Another Path For Data Leakage

Here’s one more thing for IT, Information Security and Privacy folks to put on their list of things to worry about…

Google Apps edition bypasses the IT department

“By its very nature as a Web-hosted software suite, an unmanaged Google Apps deployment can represent a concern for IT departments, since the applications and the data generated are stored outside organizations’ firewalls in Google data centers.”

Another path for data leakage, and for personally identifiable information (PII) security incidents and privacy breaches.
