Cloud computing is yet one of the leading developments and depicts the biggest progress in web technologies. It offers a convenient way for using shared and easy accessible resources, in both a web-based and demandoriented sense. However, cloud computing brings concept-based risks, e.g. the risk of private data becoming publicly available. Outsourcing of services into a cloud computing environment arises numerous compliance and security-problems for the potential customer. Legal as well as business requirements have to be met after migration to a cloud environment. Compliance to laws, industry-specific regulations and other rules have to be kept. In this paper we present the research project SecureClouds and our ongoing research towards security and compliance analysis of processes which a re to be outsourced into the cloud. We further show a first prototype of an analytic tool-environment that allows us to examine whether outsourcing of a business process is possible while keeping all security and compliance requirements.
