More Dutch consumers are concerned about the privacy and security of their data in the cloud and less find cloud storage a useful service than a year ago, according to the latest survey by the Telecompaper Consumer Panel. In July this year, 59 percent said cloud storage was useful, as it provides access to files from anywhere. That's down from 64 percent in July 2015. Over the same period, the share of consumers saying they are concerned about privacy in the cloud rose to 50 percent from 46 percent. This is the first increase in such concerns since 2011.
