    Data security model in cloud computing

    Industry 4.0, Vol. 5 (2020), Issue 2, pg(s) 55-58

    In the last decade, cloud computing has become an extremely important business assistant that offers significantly lower costs than traditional computer-aided resource provision and greater adaptability to business changes. Thus, it helps them to achieve their business goals. The development of cloud computing poses significant risks, which serve as a partial barrier to their use by the businesses. Security and protection of information are considered to be one of the most critical points in the use of cloud computing. Compared to traditional solutions, cloud computing moves application software and databases to large data centers where information and service management are not always secure and reliable. As a result of this, the community and businesses have many concerns and questions about the security of data and applications in cloud infrastructures. In addition, concerns about data security and applications also arise due to the fact that both user data and applications are managed by the cloud provider. Clouds typically use a standardized data and application security architecture, while the demand for consumer and business services is steadily growing and becoming more diverse and with more sophisticated software design that leads to continuous upgrades to data security models in cloud computing. Due to the different methods of implementation in cloud computing service delivery models, the demand for a reasonable level of data protection is of utmost importance. The purpose of this publication is to propose a new information security model, which offers a solution for improving the use of sensitive data by introducing a three-factor authentication – an improvement of preventive control.

    MODEL FOR A SMART AND SAFE CITY

    Science. Business. Society., Vol. 1 (2016), Issue 3, pg(s) 6-10

    The idea of smart cities is timely considering that urbanisation is inevitable. While smart city as a concept has gained popularity over the past few years, there is vagueness in the definition, as multiple aspects including governance, public transport and traffic, waste management, entertainment and safety among others, need to be considered.

    Europe is among the most urbanised regions on the globe. It is estimated that by 2020 around 80% of Europeans will be living in urban areas, in several countries the proportion will be 90% or more. As we continue to magnetise towards urban hubs we need smart cities – places where networks and services are made more efficient with the use of digital and telecommunication technologies for the benefit of inhabitants, businesses and the environment. The EU is trying to ensure that smart solutions for cities can be explored, implemented and replicated.

    The present paper defines some of the aspects of the smart city as safety as well as specific models of smart and safe city will be discussed.
