Depending on the type of cloud security used, customers are responsible for safeguarding their data and applications in the cloud and their operating systems, software, and network configurations. 

Here are the 5 Flaws in the cloud cybersecurity partnership model:

1. Misunderstanding Cloud Security: One of the most prevalent problems with the shared responsibility paradigm is misunderstanding cloud security. Some clients have too optimistic or negative opinions about cloud security.They may believe that the Cloud service providers(CSP) have taken care of everything and that they can rest and enjoy the benefits of the cloud without having to worry about security.

2. Over Delegation responsibility: Over-delegation of duty is another risk in the shared responsibility concept. Some clients may need help comprehending what remains on their plate after migrating services to the cloud.

3. Capability VS responsibility Gap: Certain customers may need more expertise, resources, or technologies to carry out their tasks in the cloud. Companies may lack the experience, personnel, or funding to adopt appropriate data security procedures in the new cloud environment.

4. Default settings and configuration:Using default settings and configurations for cloud services or apps without altering or evaluating them is a typical error under the shared responsibility paradigm. This can lead to security flaws and expose user systems to attackers.

5. Lack of visibility and accountability: Some clients may need more visibility into their cloud environment or oversight of their CSP's behavior. They may need to be made aware of what is happening in their cloud environment, what their CSPis doing for them, or lack sufficient recorded proof to demonstrate compliance and performance.
