Cloud computing security is a broad research domain with a large number of concerns, ranging from protecting hardware and platform technologies to protecting clouds data and resource access (through different end- user devices). Although the advantages of cloud computing are tremendous, the security and privacy concerns of cloud computing have always been the focus of numerous cloud customers and impediment to its widespread adaptation by businesses and organizations. The paper presents a systematic literature review in the field of cloud computing with a focus on risk assessment. This would help future research and cloud users/business organizations to have an overview of the risk factors in a cloud environment. And to proactively map their indigenous needs with this technology.
