Evaluate the risk of file-sharing sites

File-sharing sites can be a useful way to share documents with external parties. However, there are inherent risks that need to be evaluated before allowing access to these sites:

  • Can personal or sensitive data be shared over these sites?
  • Can we protect our confidential files and/or intellectual property?
  • Is there a risk of information leakage?
  • Are these file-sharing sites properly protected against viruses, malware,...?
  • Are there potential legal implications?
