Widespread deployment of the Internet enabled building of an emerging IT delivery model, i.e., cloud computing. Albeit cloud computing-based services have rapidly developed, their security aspects are still at the initial stage of development. In order to preserve cybersecurity in cloud computing, cybersecurity information that will be exchanged within it needs to be identified and discussed. For this purpose, the authors propose an ontological approach to cybersecurity in cloud computing. They build an ontology for cybersecurity operational information based on actual cybersecurity operations mainly focused on non-cloud computing.
