Abstract

Cloud computing is a prospering technology that most organizations consider as a cost effective strategy to manage Information Technology (IT). It delivers computing services as a public utility rather than a personal one. However, despite the significant benefits, these technologies present many challenges including less control and a lack of security. In this paper, we illustrate the use of a cyber security metrics to define an economic security model for cloud computing system. We also, propose a solution related to the vulnerabilities in cloud computing in order to reduce the probability that the components fail.
