A Framework for Cloud Forensic Readiness in Organizations

A Framework for Cloud Forensic Readiness in Organizations
A Framework for Cloud Forensic Readiness in Organizations
Many have argued that cloud computing is one of the fastest growing and most transformative technologies in the history of computing. It has radically changed the way in which information technologies can manage, access, deliver and create services. It has also brought numerous benefits to end-users and organizations. However, this rapid growth in cloud computing adoption has also seen it become a new arena for cybercrime. This has, in turn, led to new technical, legal and organizational challenges. In addition to the large number of attacks which affect cloud computing and the decentralized nature of data processing in the cloud, many concerns have been raised. One of these concerns is how to conduct a proper digital investigation in cloud environments and be ready to collect data proactively before an incident occurs in order to save time, money and effort. This paper proposes the technical, legal and organizational factors that influence digital forensic readiness for Infrastructure as a Service consumers.

Abstract

Many have argued that cloud computing is one of the fastest growing and most transformative technologies in the history of computing. It has radically changed the way in which information technologies can manage, access, deliver and create services. It has also brought numerous benefits to end-users and organizations. However, this rapid growth in cloud computing adoption has also seen it become a new arena for cybercrime. This has, in turn, led to new technical, legal and organizational challenges. In addition to the large number of attacks which affect cloud computing and the decentralized nature of data processing in the cloud, many concerns have been raised. One of these concerns is how to conduct a proper digital investigation in cloud environments and be ready to collect data proactively before an incident occurs in order to save time, money and effort. This paper proposes the technical, legal and organizational factors that influence digital forensic readiness for Infrastructure as a Service consumers.
