The Dark Side of Cloud Computing

Companies tapping into virtual infrastructure through cloud computing should take another look at their security plans, say experts at the Black Hat Security Conference. From legal protection to phishing, here are five cloud security issues to consider.

Here are they:

  1. Cloud offers less legal protection
  2. You don’t own the hardware
  3. Strong policies and user education required
  4. Don’t trust machine instances
  5. Rethink your assumptions

Interesting slides from the recent Black Hat conference here. Unfortunately the paper is missing, but probably need just a recheck next week here (or see for Haroon Meer under the speaker on the right side here.
