Cloud computing has been highlighted as a key technology for companies looking to mitigate disruptions during the Olympic Games this year.
Matt Gordon-Smith, director of security at managed service specialist Attenda, recently warned of the disturbances that are likely to be caused due to the event.
He explained that logistic problems will be common and IT-based services were noted as one area that could also suffer due to this.
However, Mr Gordon-Smith suggested cloud computing could be used to enable homeworking for employees, without compromising the security of the data being utilised.
"Typically, some organisations might only make this allowance for technical operational people, but might still have a requirement for the business operation side to come into an office," he said.
Earlier in the week, technical director at hosting specialist UKFast.co.uk Neil Lathwood hailed cloud computing as a great way to minimise the security risks associated with bring your own device policies.
