Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionScientificpeer-review


Cloud computing has been a frequently researched subject as it brings many advantages, such as the ability to store data remotely and scale rapidly, but also comes with several issues, including privacy, trust and security. The decision whether it is best to go `into the cloud' or to `stay inside' is quite complicated when it comes to privacy issues, considering that the organization itself stays responsible for the data when it is stored in the cloud. This research provides organizations with a guideline on how to handle privacy considerations of cloud solutions based on literature and empirical research. In addition, a privacy control framework is developed to provide prerequisites regarding privacy in the cloud which can be used to confirm if an organization is `cloud ready' or not.
