Does moving to the Cloud increase your chance of Insider Threat?

Do you believe moving to the Cloud to obtain your computing power could increase your chances of being compromised by an insider threat?  Well, according to MeriTalk, it very well could... and I believe it.

"Increased migration to and applications in the cloud make it more difficult to identify insider threats, according to 59 percent of government employees that responded to the MeriTalk Inside Job survey, underwritten by Symantec and released on May 15."

These findings are significant as everyone has believed going with an Amazon, a Google, a Microsoft, or some other known cloud commodity solution would ensure protection from all harm.  We all need to face it, insiders with privileged access to information necessary to do their jobs are the very ones who can be compromised.
