Abstract:
This paper presents a model of accountability for cloud computing services, based on ongoing work as part of the A4Cloud project. We define a three-layer model of accountability as a general concept for data governance, distinguishing between accountability attributes, accountability practices, and accountability mechanisms and tools.
