Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to explore the important security factors for protecting data in cloud storage from the perspective of security practitioners. The study consist of 43 security variables (or indicator items) from a survey participated by security practitioners in Malaysia. Exploratory factor analysis (EFA) is conducted to understand the clusters of variables (or indicator items) and the inter-relationships constructing the security factors (or components). Most of the respondents are from public sector organisations (government and higher education organisations) in Malaysia. The clusters of variables resulting from this analysis can be used as a reference for security practitioners planning to produce security policies to protect data stored in a cloud storage. The top security factors identified from this study are shown in terms of policy implementation and controls in confidentiality, integrity, availability, non-repudiation, authenticity, reliability, accountability a nd auditability of data services in cloud storage.
