Cloud Computing (CC) is the on - demand delivery of computing power, database storage, applications, and other IT resources via pay as you go internet cloud services platform. Due to its various advantages, CC is taking center stage in electrical power providers. However, security threats and attacks are mostly one of the problems due to CC's popularity in electrical grid agencies. The main objective of this study is to propose a security model that would prevent threats and attacks in cloud based power monitoring platform. Due to the lack of resources to gather data regarding common threats and attack in cloud based power monitoring, the researchers used Systematic Literature Review (SLR) as the method to come up with the appropriate solution for the proposed security model. Dedicated server deployment model was also used to create the proposed security model. Experts in the field of network security and smart system verified the acceptability of the proposed security model if it is feasible to use in cloud based power monitoring systems.
