Abstract [en]

This project aims to investigate the status of cloud computing among business and government organizations, and to understand the security concerns of organizations regarding the adoption of cloud. The study shows that some government agencies lag behind using cloud computing, while others are leading the way. The literature was reviewed and much was discovered about the complexity of cloud computing. Then a survey was done and some participants agreed to follow up interviews in order to clarify the status of cloud acceptance. Security issues were found to be the major reason for delay in cloud adoption. However, the literature shows that proper adoption of the cloud actually increases security. Results of the data analysis shows that the US, and Canada lag behind industry in adopting the cloud, while in the UK, Australia and part of the EU governments are leading the way.
