How do you think the revelations about the program known as PRISM will have for the cloud?

Not good.

When our company was looking to choose a personal cloud storage provider, Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, SkyDrive, they were comfortable that data would not physically get lost/destroyed, but when they read the security policies, ouch. Most of these companies leave the door very open around them viewing your files and potential interaction with authorities.

Add to that the issue of cross-border security. You have to be careful when using cloud storage for business purposes. You can't always be sure in which country the data is physically stored. It's possible that the privacy/data access laws of the country where the data is stored may not be the same, or even compatible, with the ones in your country.
