How secure is Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive and iCloud?

August 2, 2015

Should you be worried about how secure your cloud storage provider is? Here is a pretty good article by Davey Winder at Alphr.com just published on 7/31/2015 discussing the popular choices. I learned a few things. The short answer is that there have been no problems yet except those cause or triggered by user error.

The take home lesson is that a combination of local file encryption (I use built-in HP encryption) used in conjunction with these services is the most reasonable approach to high level security for most of us.
