	%X Business processes are crucial for organizations and
help businesses to evaluate and optimize their performance and
processes against current and future-state business goals. Outsourcing
business processes to the cloud becomes popular due to a wide
varsity of benefits and cost-saving. However, cloud outsourcing raises
enterprise data security concerns, which must be incorporated in
Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN). This paper, presents
SeCloudBPMN, a lightweight extension for BPMN which extends the
BPMN to explicitly support the security threats in the cloud as an
outsourcing environment. SeCloudBPMN helps business’s security
experts to outsource business processes to the cloud considering
different threats from inside and outside the cloud. In this way,
appropriate security countermeasures could be considered to preserve
data security in business processes outsourcing to the cloud.
