    Abstract

    Cloud computing is a relatively matured concept and its adoption into business still remains slow. Uncertainties risen from lack of promotion and support of cloud services result in missed opportunities for the public. The purpose of the study is to identify the security issues in cloud computing for small local businesses in Northern Territory, Australia. This study recommends information packages and financial support for cloud clients. These mitigate rash and uninformed decisions and certain security risks. It appears that there is a lack of certified professionals who work in the cloud. Most cloud personnel are gathered from other disciplines of the IT industry to fulfil cloud roles. To combat this, official accreditation and incentives are required not only to create needed professionals but also to retain them. Through education and support, cloud computing can manage its place in the world and also able to gain momentum in small business.
