Abstract: Data in cloud inherently possess the issues of copyright, confidentiality, and contract in a business sense as cloud consumers may store their data on their third party contractor's virtual servers, but may lose their rights to the data. The ownership issue of data in cloud has been one of the most complicated ones among the issues (Al-Issa et al., 2019). Hence, it is worth examining the data ownership issue in cloud. To conduct the examination, this research study applies a risk management concept to develop a structured approach and use it to study the issue. In addition, this research study develops the risk mitigation strategy framework to organise and better deal with legal matters surrounding data ownership in cloud. This study also reviews the US case of data breaches, which involves cloud services from a perspective of law enforcement as part of risk mitigation strategy.
