Cloud computing technology nowadays provides new prospective to improve the way of sharing information and infrastructure elasticity. Regardless the speed of data flow and transfer, and the other countless benefits offered by this technology, security concerns like availability, confidentiality, integrity, flexibility, reliability etc. are still have a great influence on management decision process related to adopt the Cloud Computing solutions. Huge resources and data lure hackers even if cloud-computing infrastructure is strong, scalable and highly secure. APT is one of the most common attacks that are targeting cloud-computing resources in order to extract or compromise the data and infrastructure. In this paper, a secure framework is proposed in order to measure the APT readiness in Oman Cloud Computing Environment.
