Cloud Computing is a revolutionary trend that not only minimizes the processing cost but also enhances the Return on Investment (ROI) despite that several risks are still challenging the paradigm. To ensure the confidentiality, integrity and availability of crucial data in the Cloud, policies and processes must be created to address this expanded reliance on these extended models. Although there is presence of SLA (Service Level Agreement) and NDA (Non-disclosure agreement), "It’s not enough for everybody. Some people do want to go deeper." There are lots of questions which are still un-answered. For instance regulatory compliance, location of data centers, its physical and network security etc. Although Cloud Computing is an excellent outsourcing idea, many believe that it also presents a long list of legal and other security concerns. In this paper we are focusing on assessing the various risks present at different layers of Cloud Architecture and their potential consequences and their plausible remedial actions too.
