Abstract

Cloud computing is a new IT model that, just like electricity and water, which were firstly generated at home and evolved to be supplied from utility providers, aims to transform computing resources sharing into an utility. This enables startups and other companies to start computing services without having to invest directly in dedicated infrastructure (Moving from CAPEX to OPEX). However, many security challenges has to be overcame by stakeholders (providers and tenants) to ensure that the customer’s data are safe and secured. Many security norms and frameworks have been focused on new security challenges on Cloud. So, organizations involved in payment card processing including those that store, process, or transmit credit cardholder data are required by credit card companies to implement The Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS). In this paper we describe the advantages and security challenges in outsourcing data in Cloud Computing, giving criticism to security frameworks, and focusing, on the next steps on developing a checklist using standard frameworks
