Abstract

Of note is the fact that lately, with the conspicuous presence and domineering influence of cloud computing (cloud for short), virtual computing resources, Information technology Services, data usage and storage are all undergoing paradigm shift as several of these resources and services move from on-premises to public cloud environments. As Cloud Computing Service Providers (CSP) take advantage of virtualization technologies, combined with Do-It-Yourself (DIY) capabilities, to offer to clients cost-effective access to computing resources via the internet, one consistent but major issue in cloud computing is security and integrity and they are interrelated. Security and integrity are serious issue here because they can determine level of acceptability and success of the emerging phenomenon. An insecure outlet cannot claim to have integrity. The converse is also true. This paper reviews security and integrity concerns associated with cloud computing services and environments and offers suggestions to maintain compliance with data security and integrity using a proposed model as virtual resources move from onpremise to public cloud environments.
