Using long term cloud storage

For long term cloud storage, is there any guarantee of security and privacy? I realize there are cloud storage security options but I'm concerned about the security over a period of 10+ years. I'm talking about GCP, AWS, Azure, not dropbox etc.

  • There are no guarantees.  Your credentials and devices are the weakest links, but all platforms have inherent risks.  Good, validated multi-provider backups are a good mitigation strategy, as is encryption assuming you can do long-term key management.
