So far, no.

I see no need to supply examples since the failures continue to happen.

I hope your IT/CIO/CIT and such do their best and keep all data not only password protected but encrypted. Both on the cloud and during transfer but leaks continue to happen.

Do you know why?

Encryption helps to make it secure.

Migrating to cloud storage is not a guarantee that your data is protected. Still, there may be a risk of losing your data.

To ensure the safety of your data, it needs to be encrypted both at rest and in transit. Encrypting your data reduces a lot of chances of your data breach.

In the end, the safety of your data migration totally depends on the type of cloud storage you choose. So consider everything and keep monitoring your migration process and the data migrated.

If you find anything suspicious then perform quick action to protect your data.
