Security Concerns in Cloud Computing

Some of the security concerns is all about, unauthorised access to the data that’s been store in the cloud, or unauthorised modification of the data, or the data is not being available, because the cloud service environment has been compromised, has been attacked which is called denial of service attack, or the other parts of the cloud service tenants, they get into our tenants environment and breaches the data. Now the concern from both sides, from the customer to improvise that will consume cloud services, has got so many weaknesses, although there’s no control on visibility, like how the data has been utilised, who is accessing, who is deleting that one, So which is called the visibility on the data uses not there.

As discussed in the previous section, cloud computing is a relatively new technology and has its own benefits and disadvantages.

In this section, you will learn security concerns in cloud computing. We can divide security concerns in cloud computing into two classes: general and specific. We apply general cloud security to all types of clouds, so one might not need to have an in-depth knowledge of cloud technologies and deployment models to understand them. However, to understand the concerns of specific cloud security, you need to know the basics of cloud structures and models.
