What happens when it rains – is moving to the cloud always a good thing?

26 July 2023

Is moving to the cloud safe, secure and a sensible business decision?

A lot of non-profits are still using on premise servers and systems or have a hybrid approach having adopted systems like SharePoint, G-Suite, Slack, Monday.com and Dropbox.

From our conversations with the sector, it’s clear that organisations are still looking at the best ways to move their information to the cloud. It does have considerable security benefits – From online systems and tools, to data centre operators and service providers who host servers, data, and infrastructure within them so you can access your data from anywhere.

There is never going to be a scenario in which your data is 100% safe in the cloud. However, by taking the time to assess your options, you will reduce your exposure and mitigate the risks to ensure it is a scalable solution for your organisation maximising the huge benefits that working in the cloud brings.
