Spies Can Target CIA Amazon Cloud for Hacking Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Sun, Jul 20, 2014, 08:29 PM

China and Russia are actively building massive data centers to store information from major global corporations through cloud services. And now the CIA, as well as the {Pentagon, have joined in by utilizing Amazon cloud to store all their Top Secret information. Could anything go wrong? Well you should talk to Target Superstores about that. They faced serious credit card breaches conducted by criminal hackers.

According to the Daily Caller, "In 2013, the CIA and Amazon, Inc. made a deal – Amazon would build a special cloud system for the U.S. intelligence community, and the CIA would pay Amazon a whopping $600 million. After a long journey fraught with legal battles and money troubles, the CIA will finally start using the new cloud system this summer."

The CIA is quoted as saying that, “The goal was, ‘Can we act like a large enterprise in the corporate world and buy the thing that we don’t have, can we catch up to the commercial cycle? Anybody can build a data center, but could we purchase something more? We decided we needed to buy innovation."

As reported by the Daily Caller, "The purpose of the cloud system is to allow the CIA’s 17 intelligence agencies to share data. By using this cloud, the CIA hopes to avoid security breaches and keep better track of intelligence data so the U.S. doesn’t experience another 9/11, according to The Atlantic."

If the CIA and Pentagon clouds get hacked into that could spell doom for U.S. national security.
