Chapter 14 - Files in the cloud


It is becoming increasingly common to use cloud storage systems to store documents, photographs or any other type of information.

Among other advantages, our files are accessible from any device.
But this way of storing our information is not risk-free.

Correct use will minimize the chances that unauthorized persons may have access to our private files, that we may lose information or that it may simply remain unprotected.

In this chapter, SafeUser offers basic guidelines for protecting our information in the cloud.
