Summary Cloud Computing is an advanced paradigm with a lot of advantages, but its distinct features also create privacy and security issues. Cloud computing provides service model which is more efficient technology for business support. Cloud computing is in fact a service based approach which has changed almost every aspect of computing technologies. There are many threats to the cloud computing including security vulnerabilities and privacy issues. Normally a third party, who creates and owns the infrastructure, provides cloud computing services to the clients. Cost effectiveness, flexibility, resource pooling and broad network access are salient features of the cloud computing. The risks to cloud computing are data security, authentication, data breaching, access control and virtual exploits. Cloud security intelligence has taken steps to ensure secure cloud computing services. “Security as service implementation guide” and “Security guidance for critical areas in Cloud Computing” serves as a standard catalogue for secure cloud computing services. IT companies and governments are using these guide lines for secure services. Cloud Computing National Institute of Standards and Technology’s defined Cloud computing as: "Cloud Computing is a model for enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released
