Dropbox have confirmed that the theft of an employee’s password resulted in a spam attack on a number of European Dropbox accounts. This sparks the debate of how safe is file sharing online. The use of consumer grade services for the sharing of business critical data is certainly unsafe. The use of these consumer services to store and share files online could result in a violation of data protection laws and could break both internal and external data privacy policies. However, for many businesses the easiest way to sync and share files online is through the use of email and other similar applications.
