Cloud computing:the security challenge (part 3)

This, the third fact file in the cloud computing series, examines the many aspects of security in the context of cloud computing and offers some evidence based advice on the considerations needed to enter the world of cloud computing with confidence; and, conversely, to know when cloud adoption may not be appropriate.

There is no attempt to discuss specific solutions to IT security issues as there are many other sources of expert guidance on that subject. The fact file, will however, attempt to discuss these issues in the context of Cloud computing models and contrast these with those found in a typical in house IT department and infrastructure.
