Article dispelling concerns over the safety of using a cloud-based payroll software

The prevalence of cyber attacks has created an atmosphere of distrust over the safety of using cloud-based payroll softwares to track and distribute employee payroll. As an expert, what are the facts on the ground, and how can providers dispel those assumptions and convince the public that security is not a problem? We’re looking for commentary by payroll/software/SaaS experts, as our company is in payroll and would not want to cross promote competitors, such as the head of a different payroll provider. Email submissions only please! We will reply to contributors whose insight we use. Anything from a couple of sentences to a paragraph is fine. Requirements: finance experts, tech experts, software security experts.
