Abstract

Cloud computing becomes the best offer in ICT for data storage and processing, offering flexible and scalable computing processing capacity. But, cloud computing may produce different risks with different impact to client company business than traditional IT solutions. Cloud service providers must implement effectively information security management to reduce the security risks improving the cloud customer business continuity. In this paper, we use high-level risk-based approach to address the risks of the security challenges in the cloud in order to improve the client company business continuity if migrates its services into cloud. The comparative analysis of main security benefits and detriments of the cloud that impacts the business continuity was not performed in the literature so far. In this paper we start analyzing the benefits that cloud computing offers to business continuity, in order to depreciate the risks to acceptable level.
