Warning about Use of Dropbox and similar providers

Dropbox is in the news again about security issues (see the links at the bottom). The takeaway is: don’t use the same password for more than one website.

You may be interested to know that BOSS has a secure web server with an Intruder Detection System which includes blocking access from an IP address that is not your office IP address. We also have a lockout system that will lock someone out after 5 failed attempts – preventing robots from hacking too!

So the question is, if you use another outsourcing provider how good is their security and do they have Professional Indemnity Insurance to cover a worst case scenario?
