Abstract

In recent years, cloud computing or on-demand computing technologies and applications have become ubiquitous, permeating every aspect of our personal and professional lives. Governments and enterprises are now adopting cloud technologies for numerous applications to increase their operational efficiency, improve their responsiveness and competitiveness. For these reasons, the requirements for developing cloud applications have increased. Despite having many advantages for IT organizations, cloud has some issues that must be consider during its deployment. The main concerns are security, privacy and trust. These issues arise during the deployment of mostly public cloud infrastructure. In this chapter, security, privacy and trust issues of cloud computing deployment in Saudi Arabia were identified and the solutions to overcome these problems were discussed.
