Protecting data in personal cloud storage with security classifications

Protecting data in personal cloud storage with security classifications
Protecting data in personal cloud storage with security classifications
More and more data is stored in personal cloud storage and it is expected to grow further. As cloud storage is becoming an option for user in keeping their data online, it comes with the security threats and the challenges of protecting their data from unauthorised access. Many security controls have been implemented by cloud storage providers (CSPs) as a security measure but although encryption is known as one of the solution, it cannot be fully implemented due to the need of a robust and costly infrastructure. Therefore, we foresee the need to implement protection based on categorisation of data determined by users. This paper will discuss recent security threats and also the levels of data protection in cloud storage. We propose a security framework that protects data in cloud storage based on the level of protection it needs.

Abstract

More and more data is stored in personal cloud storage and it is expected to grow further. As cloud storage is becoming an option for user in keeping their data online, it comes with the security threats and the challenges of protecting their data from unauthorised access. Many security controls have been implemented by cloud storage providers (CSPs) as a security measure but although encryption is known as one of the solution, it cannot be fully implemented due to the need of a robust and costly infrastructure. Therefore, we foresee the need to implement protection based on categorisation of data determined by users. This paper will discuss recent security threats and also the levels of data protection in cloud storage. We propose a security framework that protects data in cloud storage based on the level of protection it needs.
