US law enforcement could be taking sensitive government information out into the clout.
In putting this information on third party run servers could that put our country's intelligence information at risk.
Former Homeland Security chief Michael Chertoff now the chairman of the chart off group.
Mister secretary is great need to be here agree on the surface it makes me nervous but we'll start with the benefits what's the upside would I start with cost saving.
And -- more India again hot there are some upside one is cross shaving.
I can be a lot cheaper to maintain the data.
I'm a series of servers that you co host.
Offer a number of users are -- some advantages in terms are promoting collaboration.
Among analyst and different agencies you can work pop off the same data act at the same time.
But there's some security issues involved are some positives -- -- some serious risks as well.
What are those risk I mean hacking first and foremost was it was an answer that.
Last year with a long war with some law enforcement information compromise -- they're not.
There was then and there have been of course incidents denial of service attacks or penetration is that we -- -- Almost on a weekly or daily basis.
So you know the upside of having it.
Crap from security standpoint is he opportunity to use the best security tools put him inflation protected that.
The downside as you have or your eggs in one basket.
And if somebody gets into the basket -- those -- can be broken.
So you've got to be very careful when you can figure.
-- your cloud servers to make sure you've got internal protections.
So that even if there is in breach.
It's a little bit like a ship you can close off a compartment and keep -- rest of its.
And also make sure that the information is located.
In a place that didn't we have jurisdiction over that information.
Private investors -- -- -- in people don't often think about where the servers are located physically.
But if you for example are working act in a cloud review servicer overseas.
The lords of the country in which there was machines are located you're going to affect where there's a local government gets access to that information.
So if -- something's really important you wanna make sure it is solely within the custody of American the American legal system and I think that's something which is gonna become.
An increasing problem is data moves around the world and comes to rest in multiple locations.
Michael was great to see you as always thank you so much important issue we will discuss it further I -- sure Michael turn -- former secretary.
Homeland Security part.
