Abstract: Introducing a new concept of cloud computing in their environment. Cloud computing improves organizations performance by utilizing minimum resources and management support, with a shared network, valuable resources (The NIST Definition of Cloud Computing, 2009), bandwidth, software’s and hardware’s in a cost effective manner and limited service provider dealings. Basically it’s a new concept of providing virtualized resources to the consumers. Consumers can request a cloud for services, applications, solutions and can store large amount of data from different location. But due to constantly increase in the popularity of cloud computing there is an ever growing risk of security becoming a main and top issue. Current paper proposes a backup plan required for overcoming the security issues in cloud computing.
