What is happening to the EPA’s data stored in the cloud?

The Environmental Protection Agency can’t keep track of the data it stores in the cloud. EPA’s Inspector General says it a subcontractor for a water permit system was using a cloud system to run its share of the operation, but neither the agency nor the prime contractor was aware of it. Albert Schmidt is an IT auditor of Information Resources Management and audits for the EPA’s Inspector General. He says this type of cybersecurity problem isn’t entirely the agency’s fault.
