Abstract

Cloud Computing is a new technology, widely used in different areas, allowing easy and on-demand access through the internet to a shared set of configurable computing resources. The adoption of this new technology within companies is restricted by security constraints. In this paper, we present the most significant risks that could affect organizations intending to deploy Cloud technology and security measures to be in place to reduce the impact of risks based on a literature review.
