Cloud computing technology has gained extensive popularity around the world and this is justified by the fact that many enterprise applications, data and services are migrating into cloud platforms. As more businesses are moving data and applications to the cloud, there are growing concerns about cloud security and privacy issues. In this research work, the key security & privacy issues (i.e. network and data security, governance, compliance and legal issues, and communication interface & virtualisation security) were identified and discussed and solutions were provided. With these in mind, cloud customers will be able to assess and compare cloud computing services, with respect to security and privacy, so that they can make informed choices. In addition, cloud service providers (CSPs) can also address the discussed issues to offer better security and privacy.
