Abstract: Whereas once data storage was confined to a computer's hardware, now the sky is quite literally the limit. Cloud storage is flexible, simple, and cost-effective; however, it also introduces significant data security risks. One such risk is the unscrupulous misuse of data stored in the cloud so as to perpetrate acts of cyberbullying. Cloud storage uniquely amplifies the risk of harm to cyberbullying victims given its propensity to reduce a user's control over data. More stringent regulation is required before users can confidently send data to the cloud.
