Cloud computing is one of the computational infrastructure that has brought a new phase of data
processing and management in the business of the 21st century, which of course has impacted
positively in businesses. There is no doubt that its deep penetration and patronage by users is
connected to the ready-made environment for different services provided by the platform. The
key performance indicator (KPI) saving models of cloud computing demonstrated in terms of
cost, time, quality, compliance, revenue and profitability indicate that the technology is a
welcome development and has been embraced by all businesses so far.
As the level of patronage for cloud computing grows deeper with no sign of decrease at sight,
there are also growing concerns or challenges by both the providers and the users. These
challenges and concerns primarily linked to the security and privacy of the rich and high volume
of data which flow through the platform and those stored up there for future references. These
include health data, financial information, flight, aviation, research and critical national security
information, to mention but a few.
This paper examines and explores the various security and privacy concerns along with a
proposal on mitigating such concerns by the use of a cross-language programming technology.
