The Risk Management Strategy of Applying Cloud Computing

It is inevitable that Cloud Computing will trigger off some loss exposures. Unfortunately, not much of scientific and objective researches had been focused on the identification and evaluation of loss exposures stemming from applications of Cloud Computing. In order to fill this research gap, this study attempts to identify and analyze loss exposures of Cloud Computing by scientific and objective methods which provide the necessary information to administrators in support of decisions of risk management. In conclusion, this study has identified “Social Engineering”, “Cross-Cloud Compatibility” and “Mistakes are made by employees intentionally or accidentally” are high priority risks to be treated. The findings also revealed that people who work in the field of information or Cloud Computing are somehow ignorant of where the risks in Cloud Computing lie due to its novelty and complication.
