Maintaining Secure Cloud by Continuous Auditing
International Journal of Trend in Scientific Research and Development
Increases in cloud computing capacity, as well as decreases in the cost of processing, are moving at a fast pace. These patterns make it incumbent upon organizations to keep pace with changes in technology that significantly influence security. Cloud security auditing depends upon the environment, and the rapid growth of cloud computing is an important new context in world economics. The small price of entry, bandwidth, and processing power capability means that individuals and organizations of
... all sizes have more capacity and agility to exercise shifts in computation and to disrupt industry in cyberspace than more traditional domains of business economics worldwide. An analysis of prevalent cloud security issues and the utilization of cloud audit methods ca mitigate security concerns. This verification methodology indicates how to use frameworks to review cloud service providers (CSPs). barrier to widespread uptake of cloud computing is the lack of trust in clouds by potential customers. While preventive controls for security and privacy are actively researched, there is still little focus on detective controls related to cloud accountability and auditability. The complexity resulting from large scale virtualization and data distribution carried out current clouds has revealed an urgent research agenda for cloud accountability, as has the shift in focus of customer concerns from servers to data.
