Can You Bust a Cloud Myth?

We hear about “the cloud” more and more everyday – cloud storage, cloud computing, and cloud security. But with so much information around the cloud flooding our streams, it’s hard to decipher what’s a myth and what’s a fact.

That being said, we wanted to test exactly what you know– or, what you think you know about the cloud with our “Bust a Cloud Myth” Twitter contest!

The rules are simple. Check out the @IntelSec_Biz Twitter channel each day during March 20th  – March 24th, for a “Bust a Cloud Myth” post. Each Tweet will either display a fact about the cloud, or a myth– it’s up to you to decide.

Once you comment on the Tweet with your answer, you’ll be entered for the chance to win a $20 Amazon Gift Card. Want the upper hand? Read our latest report for a deep dive into the current state of the cloud.

After each day of the contest, we’ll randomly select a winner and notify them via Direct Message on their victory!

So, head over to @IntelSec_Biz and see if you can Bust a Cloud Myth! Good luck!
