I do not want my "government" details (i.e social security numbers, tax details, etc....) held on cloud servers from ANY hosting company. I want MY data held on Government servers IN THE UK and not on some Google, Amazon, MS, Apple, or any other 3rd party servers.
It's a bit pointless me being decidedly cautious with my data, for my even more personal data being held on servers belonging (in some cases) to the exact same companies.
As for the headline:
"Confused, pessimistic on G-Cloud? You must work in government." That should read:
Confused, pessimistic on G-Cloud? You must be smart enough not to listen to the sales men!
Cloud is a PART of a solution and NOT the be all and end all.
