Amazon to host Defense Department data! What could possibly go wrong?

I’m not sure this is the best idea.

To quote from the story:

“This week, the Defense Department granted the cloud computing giant (Amazon) a provisional authorization to host Impact Level 5 workloads, which are the military and Pentagon’s most sensitive, unclassified information.”

Hackers are always trying to steal valuable information, so that’s bad enough. But now the defense department is telling them where to look.

I guess the saving grace is it’s unclassified information, so what’s the big deal if North Korea gets it while buying the newest Taylor Swift cd?
