As the Internet world develops, the business world is faced by serious hacking threats from unknown sources. The year 2017 has been a busy year for attackers and security providers.

With most businesses embracing cloud computing, the biggest questions that arise is, can they have a credible security to prevent these kinds of high-tech Cyber attacks? How safe are their websites?
What is cloud security?
Cloud security technology is a pack of set regulations and policies established or designed to help in the protection of information, data, and compliance by the users in the cloud computing. Any information or data stored in the cloud are protected by this security. Cloud computing security brings a number of network controls in order to maintain continuity and the required protections for the cloud based websites and applications.
When businesses are moving to keep their information in the cloud, cloud security becomes an issue.
What are the advantages and the disadvantages of cloud security?
