3 tips to protecting information on Dropbox

Published:

Dropbox is a online tool that allows businesses to store documents, photos, videos and other pieces of information that may be confidential. While this online service is certainly convenient, it also brings upon security risks that businesses need to take seriously. Here is a list of ways firms can be sure to protect their sensitive information on Dropbox.

1. Limit Dropbox use:  Dropbox is a tool that allows employees within a business and firms in a supply chain to collaborate with one another, but all information doesn't need to be held in the cloud. Business users should be sure to monitor what files are stored in Dropbox and what needs to be held in a more secure environment.

2. Monitor suspicious activity:  Businesses that use Dropbox should keep a log of everything that was done within the storage environment. By doing so, firms will be able to see if cybercriminals are infiltrating their environment. Protecting information held on Dropbox with cyberliability insurance is also a smart idea. 

3. Make Dropbox a public forum: Dropbox should be treated as an online community for users until more strict security measures are created. Keeping this in mind, business users should only add non-confidential information.
