MetadataShow full item record
Recently, the adoption of cloud services has led to several security concerns. Cloud services in most cases have benefits on reducing the cost and increasing the flexibility. Cloud adaption may cause several security concerns mostly but not the only ones regarding to data privacy, location and data classification. However, in cloud infrastructure technology approaches are mostly investigated by leading concerns into human aspects. The project is mainly focused on treating human aspects and their indication into cloud environment. Moreover, to elaborate the people’s indication and make them positive factor in preventing and making the data in the cloud secure instead of being a disruption and factor of leading security incidents. To perform security measures and make cloud users aware of potential security risks, companies should provide policy statements and develop awareness programs. Nevertheless, based on literature review and interviews done during this project with key persons in cloud security, we have treated main elements by focusing in the current and future approaches in order to deal with human aspects indication in cloud. Furthermore, the project examines the methods how to behave and how to make the cloud environment secure by building security measures, as well as how to handle if any incident has taken place within a company. Ultimately, the outcome of the project includes overall recommendations in how to make the cloud environment secure by treating main concerns and using appropriate security measures.
