Abstract

This article takes a fresh view on cloud security by analyzing, from the risk management perspective, the specification of security in Cloud Service Level Agreements (secSLA), which forms a promising approach to empower customers in assessing and understanding Cloud security. Furthermore, we analyze the standardization landscape and present a real-world scenario to support our advocacy in the creation and adoption of secSLA's as enablers for negotiating, assessing and monitoring the achieved security levels in the Cloud supply chain.
