Oh dear, that wasn't a popular opinion now was it? :)

I should clarify (or you could read some of my other posts on the subject) that I'm not objecting to cloud based services where they are appropriate, but for the kind of environments I'm asked to design 'The Cloud' is an anathema to me.

If a security consultant were to suggest we put the crown jewels of a company into a cloud based solution I would strongly object, to the point where I would walk off the project if it were insisted upon. You are welcome to disagree with my opinion, but I don't know any reputable security consultant who would align themselves with such a precarious proposition. My reputation is pretty much all I have to trade with, if I lose that I'm out of work and penniless - no way I'm going to put it into someone else's hands.
