Hi Aileen,

There are probably 7 top threats to Cloud computing integrity and security. They are listed as below:

·         Abuse on Cloud Computing – This would be because there are some providers that offers free trials and registration process that can be done in 5 minutes to those businesses that does not really understand the use of Cloud.

·         Insecure Interfaces – The interfaces that should be used on Cloud should be designed in a way that it can be spared from accidental and malicious attempts to bypass policy.

·         Malicious insiders – The level of access granted to each person with the provider organization can contribute to this threat.

·         Shared technology issues – As the services is shared by different organizations, the system may sometimes is not designed for this type of architecture.

·         Data loss or leakage – This risk becomes so big in cloud as there are a number of interactions with the cloud environment

·         Account or service hijacking – This is a very common problem not just in cloud. It becomes bigger as on cloud, there are more organizations that are affected.

·         Unknown risk profile – This risk is caused by the fact that the software and hardware in cloud is shared by multiple users.
