Abstract

Five years ago, cloud computing was one of the top emerging new
technologies, nowadays it is almost common place. This rapid introduction of
cloud business models in our society coincides with critical questions on the
cloud’s risks, such as security and privacy. Moreover, there seems to be an increased
demand for accountable behaviour in the cloud. This paper explores how
society understands the cloud, its related risks and the need for accountability in
the cloud. This exploration provides insight in the social implications of cloud and
future Internet services and the way cloud and accountability tools will be adopted
in society.
