  1. What does the cloud act as?
  2. Many cloud services are based on a ‘what’ pricing model?
  3. What amount of all files on the cloud contain sensitive data?
Key Words & Phrases
Do you understand the following Key Words & Phrases? Your teacher will select Key Words & Phrases and ask you about their meanings.
If you don’t understand, your teacher can explain them. Afterwards, try to use the Key Words & Phrases to make a sentence!
  1. 00:00 have you ever taken a minute to gaze up
  2. 00:20 cloud is a global network of servers
  3. 00:39 you can backup all of that information
  4. 00:34 music to an external device like a CD
  5. 00:43 the cloud my files are sent to servers(= A program or device which allows access to other programs/devices called ‘clients’ (desktop computer or workstations)
  6. 00:45 in Apple’s data centers all around the world
  7. 00:56 there are a few obvious benefits to consumers from the cloud (Consumers = as opposed to Businesses)
  8. 01:00 giving you peace of mind if you lose your phone
  9. 01:02 you can access your data anytime
  10. 01:12 a ton of storage businesses
  11. Massive, Tonne, Huge Etc.

  1. First let’s discuss the benefits of using the cloud!
  2. For the Consumer – Hardware failures do not result in data loss – Mobility and Flexibility
  3. For businesses – Data Centres and Servers and Cumbersome and Expensive. Not only to build but maintain
  4. – Sustainability
  5. Now Let’s discuss the risks more in-depth
  6. For the consumer
  7. – Loss or theft of “intellectual property”
  8. – Malware and exfiltration
  9. Cloud services can be used as a vector (way of moving something from one point to another) for data exfiltration.
  10. – Theft of personal information, passwords, address etc.
  11. For businesses – Compliance violations and regulatory actions. Most companies operate under the regulatory control of some sort, think for instance Private health information or confidential student records, such information cannot be hosted without very strict privacy control. Also, Contracts amongst business parties often restrict who is authorized to access it, if an employee moves data into the cloud without authorization the business contracts may be violated and legal action could ensue. For example, many smaller cloud services maintain the right to share certain data in its Terms and conditions. this could breach confidentiality agreement made between the customer and the business.
  12. – Loss of control over ‘end-user actions’ For example a sales person who is going to resign from a company could download a report of all customer contracts and upload the data to a personal cloud and then access said information once employed by a competitor.
  13. – Customer Trust In one event 40 million customer credit card numbers used at Target Stores were stolen by cybercriminals, The breach led to a loss of business to the company.

00:00 have you ever taken a minute to gaze up
00:02 at the clouds you might see a dog a
00:04 dinosaur or you our data okay your data
00:07 isn’t actually stored in a cloud in the
00:09 sky but it’s easy to think so when
00:10 there’s so much talk about cloud
00:12 computing so how does the cloud work the
00:20 cloud is a global network of servers
00:22 around the world acting as one massive
00:24 hard drive every time you sign into your
00:26 Gmail account watch a show on Netflix or
00:29 open a file from Dropbox you’re using
00:30 the cloud before the cloud you might
00:32 have backed up your documents photos or
00:34 music to an external device like a CD
00:36 ROM order your computer’s hard drive now
00:39 you can backup all of that information
00:40 to the cloud when I back up my iPhone to
00:43 the cloud my files are sent to servers
00:45 in Apple’s data centers all around the
00:47 world I can access those servers by
00:49 connecting to the internet so even if I
00:51 lose or break my phone not that it’s
00:53 ever happened before that data isn’t
00:58 consumers from the cloud besides giving
01:00 you peace of mind if you lose your phone
01:02 you can access your data anytime
01:04 anywhere if you’re connected to the
01:05 Internet and you don’t have to worry
01:07 about using up all of your storage on
01:08 your hard drive meaning you might not
01:10 have to pay as much for a device that
01:12 comes with a ton of storage businesses
01:14 are also benefiting big-time from cloud
01:16 computing it’s estimated worldwide
01:18 revenue from the cloud will exceed 200
01:20 billion dollars in 2019 that’s up from
01:23 145 billion dollars just two years ago
01:25 you’ve probably heard of the two biggest
01:27 names in the market Amazon Web Services
01:29 known as AWS and Microsoft Azure IBM
01:33 Google and Alibaba are also big players
01:35 when it comes to providing cloud
01:36 services it’s not just big tech moving
01:39 business into the cloud smaller
01:40 companies are buying into as a way to
01:42 grow their businesses just think instead
01:44 of having to buy all of this hardware to
01:46 back up your data you can store an
01:50 many cloud services are based on a
01:52 subscription pricing model that means
01:56 for cloud services and they can scale up
01:58 or down as needed and cloud providers
02:00 are cashing in AWS accounts for roughly
02:02 12% of Amazon’s quarterly sales but it
02:05 generates more than half of the
02:06 company’s operating income before we get
02:09 too excited about the cloud let’s take a
02:11 step back and look at
02:12 the risks one obvious concern if all of
02:15 our data is online what happens when the
02:17 internet goes down that’s what happened
02:19 in 2013 when an AWS outage took down
02:24 are another big risk with research
02:26 showing around one fifth of all files in
02:30 finally it can be tough for consumers
02:32 and businesses to switch between
02:33 different cloud companies I might have a
02:36 hard time syncing my iCloud and Google
02:38 Drive accounts that can give some big
02:40 companies that are already making big
02:45 our data hey everyone its Elizabeth
02:49 thanks so much for watching let us know
02:51 if you have any other ideas for CNBC
02:53 explains and leave us any ideas in the
02:57 all of our other videos over here see
02:59 you later
= One massive hard drive
= 1/5 (one fifth)
