Two aspects of it ... keeping secret what needs to be secret, and 
hedging against data loss.

About privacy, if yer "cloud" ain't failsafe-protected against ransom 
attacks, yer in trouble.

About hedging against data loss, isn't the basic rule that we need to 
regularly backup to offsite safety at intervals that always prevent loss 
of more data than we can afford to lose?
