Security risk factors that influence cloud computing adoption in Saudi Arabia government agencies
Cloud computing technologies play a substantial role in public organizations and private sector companies since it reduces the cost of using information technology services and allows users to access the service anytime and everywhere, whilst only paying for what they use. In developing countries, such as Saudi Arabia, the cloud computing is still not widely adopted, compared to countries in the west. In order to promote the adoption of cloud computing, it is important to recognize that an important and specific issue related to cloud computing is the potential and perceived security risks posed by implementing such technology. Therefore, the aim of this research is to investigate the security risk factors that influence organization to adopt cloud computing in a Saudi Arabia context. This research proposed a framework for the successful adoption of cloud computing, focused on risks when implementing security in the cloud system.

Abstract

Cloud computing technologies play a substantial role in public organizations and private sector companies since it reduces the cost of using information technology services and allows users to access the service anytime and everywhere, whilst only paying for what they use. In developing countries, such as Saudi Arabia, the cloud computing is still not widely adopted, compared to countries in the west. In order to promote the adoption of cloud computing, it is important to recognize that an important and specific issue related to cloud computing is the potential and perceived security risks posed by implementing such technology. Therefore, the aim of this research is to investigate the security risk factors that influence organization to adopt cloud computing in a Saudi Arabia context. This research proposed a framework for the successful adoption of cloud computing, focused on risks when implementing security in the cloud system.
