For today’s Movie Line Monday, VP of Marketing Jamie Barnett quotes Maltese Falcon as she shares another interesting statistic that was discovered during the Ponemon Institute study on the multiplier effect of cloud data breaches.

One of the things that Ponemon Institute found after surveying 613 IT and security professionals is that for every 1% increase in cloud service usage, there is a 3% increase in probability of a cloud data breach. Watch this episode to see Jamie walk through a real business example in more detail.
