- The number of organizations served;

There is nothing worse than trusting the organization’s important data to a provider who copes with power brakes, has problems with law or is becoming a bankrupt. Making sure that your data is properly secured and there is uninterrupted quick access to it by cloud computing should be priorities.  


Data moving possibilities    

Many cloud computing providers tie their customers down by disabling big data files loading or making the process extremely slow. Once pulling big data files is not a standard in most contracts and it can be charged additionally for trying to process big files. Such service offer needs detailed analyzing, before loading data, because changing a provider can appear money and time consuming.  



It is still the owner who is responsible for the data privacy and cohesion protection entrusted into the resources of a third party. If a company providing cloud services it has been paid for will not respect customer’s privacy, it can be called to legal responsibility. Some cloud providers keep their customers’ data in countries with no legal obligation of data protection, so they can gather and keep personal data without holding the privacy politics. Persons and company owners should check whether a provider they are considering is submitting to the legal requirement for data security (according to the American, European or any other law).  


Service Level Agreement (SLA) and End User License Agreement (EULA)     

The SLA, EULA or any other formal contract should be signed before you start cooperation with your service provider. Such agreement define rights and responsibilities of both, the user and its provider, protect them legally in case of a conflict. If a potential provider refuses to sing any formal contract, the user is not protected and should find another provider.  

Together with the increased importance of cloud computing as a solution economical to its provider as well as to consumers, more information will be kept in cloud. Therefore, users need to understand the risk connected to services of such kind in order to knowingly make decisions referring privacy security.
