Encrypted does not mean secure per se. Chances are high that your cloud provider does offer encryption, but not at all times and not in a way that makes sure that in no scenario anyone could ever access your data. This article shows how to differentiate between different types of encryption with examples from Game of Thrones. Learn how to build a wall that is high enough to protect your data from most of the threats out there.
Spoiler alert: This article contains spoilers about Game of Thrones. Specifically, one about the death of a character at the end of Season 1 and one about the fact that a certain character surives all 6 seasons up until now. If you do not want to know, skip the end-to-end encryption and hashes chapters. 😉
