SECURITY OF STORING CORPORATE OR PRIVATE DATA ONTO CLOUD STORAGE DEVICES 1
ABSTRACT Data security is considered the most important for securing data within the cloud. This study has mainly concentrated on the security issues or risks that an individual or organization suffers within the cloud and some solutions that can be utilized to lower down such issues. An issue like DDoS attack is the most common of all issues related to a data breach within cloud services. Hence, merging cloud computing with DDoS protection can help end-users in safeguarding their confidential and sensitive data. Proper methods have been applied like interpretivism philosophy, descriptive design to gather information from the selected 23 articles. Keywords- Data Privacy, Data security, encryption, cloud computing, mobile network security mobile cloud, and mobile cloud computing 2
INTRODUCTION Cloud computing is continuously growing at a great pace and shows stable growth in the field of computing. Cloud computing can be considered one of the magnificent discoveries within the information technology that seems to have increased scalability, collaboration, agility, and availability and facilitates a potential for cutting down the cist through efficient and optimized computing (Kumar and Vajpayee, 2016, p. 14). It should be added here that cloud computing is rising with the advancement in technological infrastructures such as web services, utility computing, hardware virtualization, system automation, and distributed computing. The combination of wireless networks, mobile computing, and cloud computing gave rise to mobile cloud computing. Various organizations provide different types of cloud storage services like Google Drive and Office 365 from the android operating system and iCloud from the house of Apple (Ahmad et al. 2019, pp. 15-17). However, recently, Apple’s iCloud was hacked, which happened due to an issue in Apple's password system. This clearly states that cloud computing can be a boon or a curse if neglected. Despite such issues, it can be claimed that mobile computing has brought about drastic changes in the mode of business and organizational communications. Nowadays, with mobile cloud computing, any individual can access their sensitive and personal data from any part of the world having good network service. However, with these transformations and advanced technological stuff, new security and privacy issues have popped up. Mathur, Agarwal, and Sharma (2015, pp. 495-496) believe that the cloud environment mechanism has helped monitor, check, and record on-demand services. This research study's primary goal is to identify the security of storing private and corporate data within cloud storage. It can be said that this particular research study will be of great importance to various organizations where they can find solutions to data security problems, and it can be used for future reference at the same time. Additionally, it can be said that these days, organizations, both large and
