    Since laws have been passed mandating the disclosure of data breaches,
    over 285 million records of personal information have been reportedly
    lost by companies. Cloud computing services for data storage fix some
    of the issues; for example, a company won't lose a tape or disk backup
    being shipped to an off-site location.

    However, it also creates new problems. For one, the data is out there
    on the Internet as opposed to being kept locally behind firewalls.
    For another, the number of copies made also multiplies the number of
    attack vectors for that data.

    Cleversafe (as part of their response to the conversation around their
    "3 reasons that encryption is overrated" blog post -- http://bit.ly/EokrT)
    wrote a blog post regarding this problem and how information dispersal
    may be an ideal solution for limiting risk of data exposure.

    Unfortunately the federal bills that have been proposed give no regard
    for whether or not the data that was compromised was encrypted or not,
    but perhaps dispersal provides a way out.
