The article discusses the application of cloud computing for financial firms and issues on its reliability and security. Cloud services are stated to be used by firms for less sensitive applications such as customer relations management. To mitigate risks, companies are urged to conduct vulnerability testing of applications particularly the browser and to check for role-based access controls so that employees cannot see the data that they are not authorized to have access to. Companies that adopted cloud computing in their business are presented.
