Now a days, cloud computing has been an emerging concept in the IT industry. Cloud computing is not a new technology but is a new way of using or delivering the resources. It also enhances the efficiency of computation by providing the facility of centralized database, memory processing and on demand network access. This paper examines the different categories of risks which can be controlled or quantified. It also focuses on the analysis of risk and somewhat how to assess the risk in the cloud computing
