By now, you’ve probably read the headline: ‘Cloud is everywhere’: How to keep yourself safe when using the internet.
But what is cloud anyway?

For many, it’s the way we access information, such as our favourite shows or books, on our smartphones.
And as technology advances, so does the threat of the “cloud” — the cloud is literally everywhere.
What is the cloud?
The term cloud refers to the collection of information that can be accessed in the cloud — from your email, to your bank account and more.
It includes the data stored on your devices and services, as well as your files, calendars, and your personal files.
The term ‘cloud computing’ is used to describe an array of data that can all be accessed from your device, such that a single device can access all of your information.
The internet and other services can access and store data across multiple devices, and this data is referred to as ‘the cloud’.
The term “cloud computing” was coined by Microsoft in 2014 to describe the way information is stored, accessed, and shared.
In 2018, Amazon introduced Amazon S3, which allows companies to host and access data across different devices.
In 2018, Microsoft launched its Azure cloud, an open source computing platform that allows organizations to host, access, and manage their own cloud data, which can then be accessed and shared by anyone.
It is the same approach Microsoft used with the Microsoft Azure cloud.
Microsoft Azure is used by over 100,000 organizations, including Google, Apple, and Amazon.
The cloud is an important part of many companies’ business models.
It allows them to scale quickly, to keep data safe and secure, and to run more complex applications and services.
For many, the idea of “cloud”, as used by Microsoft, is not as scary as the term “mobile computing” used by Google and Amazon — it’s something that is common and very convenient for many of us to use.
The internet has changed the way that we access data.
In 2017, it was hard to find information on the internet — there were no websites, apps, and social networks to access.
Now, with the rise of mobile computing, there are many sites that allow you to search the web, read articles, watch videos, and browse the web without the need to download any software.
For most of us, the cloud has become a part of our everyday lives, especially when it comes to our online banking, shopping, and payments.
In fact, this has become more important in recent years.
The number of people accessing the internet from a mobile device has increased from around 10% in 2017 to over 20% in 2018.
This is because, increasingly, more people use mobile devices to access the internet, while they also use their tablets, smartphones, and computers to manage online activities and tasks.
This has allowed organisations to store and access information on multiple devices at once, which has allowed them to deliver more business-as-usual (BaaS) applications to customers.
For example, a bank can store customers’ bank account information on their phone.
It can also store their credit card information, which could be useful to customers in the event of a credit card dispute.
Companies have also realised that the internet is not just a storage and retrieval device, but also a service — it can also be a payment provider.
This can mean they can offer services that can help customers and customers’ businesses make payments.
For some businesses, the internet has become the way they get payments.
For example, if a customer uses a payment gateway, such a payment processor, to get online payments from their bank, the bank can now send them money via the internet and also receive a payment via the payment gateway.
