Abstract: 
Many organizations, big and small, are moving their data into the cloud. New startups, (even banks) have adopted the model of starting off by keeping their entire data in the cloud. However, many do not properly assess its security implications. In this presentation, I will start by explaining different cloud architectures and the kind of security they offer. I will then explain the new attack vectors that have come up due to cloud storage and computing. I will give examples of how attackers have targeted cloud users and their data in the cloud. In the end, I will give my checklist on how data should be stored securely in the cloud.
