As information security professionals, we are still struggling to find an acceptable risk management strategy that encourages cloud computing for enterprises. The best part of this scholarly publication is that it starts with an introduction to the ecosystem, and by the end, has completely covered the promises, challenges, potential downsides, and strategies of cloud forensics.
