My final project for my Ethics for Computer Professionals course. It didn't convert quite right from PPT, so a few of the images cut off the text.

    • More than just storing files: Practical Uses of Cloud-based File Management Services
      Convenient workaround for receiving files – removes the need to have someone burn files to a CD which were to large to send via email.
      Reduces email overload - removes the need to email yourself a file over and over again just to have the latest version

    • What is a Cloud-based File Management Service?
      Web service which allows users to set up an account to store files securely online
      Synchronize files across multiple devices (PC, Mac, or various mobile devices)
      • Send any file, of any file size, to anyone.
      • Share folders to easily sync information across teams.

    • Service Provider Options

    • In short, having a Dropbox or SugarSync account can be a HUGE convenience. However, there are some drawbacks.
      Remember: the public link to a file is easily forwarded- You may want to delete it from your account once you verify that your recipient has downloaded the file.
      - That could be just as bad as hitting reply all to an email you meant to privately send!
      The file could be easily distributed…
      If the file gets into the wrong hands…

    • Stating the Obvious: Legal Considerations
      Do not upload files which:
      • Violate the law in any way
      • Violate the privacy of others
      • Defame others
      Compliance with Law Enforcement:
      • These services cooperate with government, law enforcement officials, private parties to enforce and comply with the law.
      • Your account could be subpoenaed!

    • Mine or yours? Who really owns files stored on Cloud Services?
      • Full ownership to user. Service provider does not own your files and will delete them off of their servers when you delete them from your account.
      • Most employees cannot even access your files: only a select few can review your account for legal compliance to a subpoena.
      • Service provider does not have to notify the account holder if their account was searched.
      7
    • The “What If” Considerations
      What if they go bankrupt? Although unlikely, a service provider could go bankrupt overnight and users would lose data.* This scenario is unlikely. These service providers are highly popular.
      What if they change their Terms of Service?It’s also possible that your service provider change their Terms of Service to make your files it inaccessible. * Also unlikely - it’s like saying you can’t trust Google to provide free gmailaccounts. **Reputation is everything to these companies, so a move like this would ruin them.
