Is it safe for me to store Level 1 or Level 2 data on Dropbox?

Printer-friendly version

No. Dropbox does not provide the level of protection required for the storage of Level 1 or Level 2 data. There are no contracts or agreements with the University that protect the privacy, ownership, or confidentiality of the data stored on Dropbox servers required by HSU.

Note, too, the statement on the Dropbox website that: Dropbox does not currently have HIPAA, FERPA, SAS 70, ISO 9001, or PCI certifications.
