The use of Cloud computing has been growing steadily due to its support to businesses and individuals in cost saving and service improvements. Despite the benefits, there are concerns such as security and privacy during its adoption. The purpose of this proposed research is to examine the security determinants by focusing on the influence of technological factors in security, organisational security view and security related environmental factors. To accomplish this goal, the T echnological-Organisational-Environmental (TOE) and the Human-Organisation-Technology (HOT-fit) frameworks are adopted into the main research framework. This research will be conducted using a Sequential Explanatory Mixed Method approach. The online survey questionnaires will be used to collect data. Then, the result of this first quantitative process will be further explored and complemented with semi-structured interviews. Results generated from both phases will then be triangulated and a cross-study synthesis will be conducted to form the final result and discussion.
