Will the cloud make the citizen more vulnerable?: Risk and vulnerability assessment in times of cloud-computing
2012 (English)In: CLOSER 2012 - Proceedings of the 2nd International Conference on Cloud Computing and Services Science, 2012, 173-176 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Through digital traces that are left behind citizens are more and more exposing their personal data, digital identities to third parties in a conscious or mostly unconscious way. The latter is particularly the case for a variety of cloud computing applications implicitly used by a default citizen. To interact in a digital world and to give away personalized information opens the door for several hazards that may occur - deliberately or not. Consequently a citizen becomes vulnerable in various dimensions. Current research tries to re-apply well-known risk analysis strategies within the new context and in particular to cloud-computing scenarios. Final aim would be to identify individual risks in a qualitative and quantitative manner.
