Abstract

Since the inception of cloud computing, security researchers have been active in addressing the question of cloud information security, which has seen the development of a wide range of technical solutions. The same can be said for non-cloud information security research which has been active for a far longer period of time. Yet, year on year, security breaches continue to increase, both in volume and in value. The business architecture of a company comprises people, process and technology. Is it not time to consider a different approach?
