Cloud Computing Security

In this paper we will explain why trust, reliability and security decisions are central to choosing the right model for cloud computing.


Cloud computing offers to change the way we use computing with the promise of significant economic and efficiency benefits. The speed of adoption depends on how trust in new cloud models can be established. Trust needs to be achieved, especially when data is stored in new ways and in new locations, including for example different countries.

This paper is provided to stimulate discussion by looking at three areas:

  • What is different about cloud?
  • What are the new security challenges cloud introduces?
  • What can be done and what should be considered further?
