Written by Nick Farell

More than a third
More than 37 percent of companies are already using cloud infrastructure, or web-connected data centres according to a survey drawn up by the chipmaker AMD.

According to the report more than 63 percent of those using the cloud store data in the cloud that is worth more than $250,000. About 63 percent said they are already seeing benefits from cloud deployments and do not really care about the latest security break ins other bad publicity such as Amazon’s big cloud outage and Sony’s PlayStation Network.

AMD conducted the survey to find out more about companies’ plans to deploy cloud technology, which relies upon servers that use AMD chips. The survey is based on interviews with 1,513 information technology professionals during the month of March about their plans for deploying cloud technology.

It is not that they don't care, but it's too late too care. I assume that most of the professionals interviewed are managers who know only the jargons and little about security. They have the incentive to defend their decisions. Basically, the survey is not credible.
