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.

Transcript

  • 1. Cloud-based File Management Services: Dropbox & SugarSync<br />By: Adam Voyton<br />Teacher: Nora Hufe<br />Ethics for Computer Professionals<br />1<br />
  • 2. More than just storing files: Practical Uses of Cloud-based File Management Services <br />Convenient workaround for receiving files – removes the need to have someone burn files to a CD which were to large to send via email.<br />Reduces email overload - removes the need to email yourself a file over and over again just to have the latest version<br />2<br />
  • 3. What is a Cloud-based File Management Service?<br />Web service which allows users to set up an account to store files securely online <br />Synchronize files across multiple devices (PC, Mac, or various mobile devices)<br /><ul><li>Send any file, of any file size, to anyone.
  • 4. Share folders to easily sync information across teams.</li></ul>3<br />
  • 5. Service Provider Options<br />SugarSyncSign up for an account at: sugarsync.com/products/sync_pricing.html<br />DropboxCreate a free account at: dropbox.com/register<br />4<br />
  • 6. In short, having a Dropbox or SugarSync account can be a HUGE convenience. However, there are some drawbacks. <br />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.<br />- That could be just as bad as hitting reply all to an email you meant to privately send!<br />The file could be easily distributed…<br />If the file gets into the wrong hands…<br />5<br />
  • 7. Stating the Obvious: Legal Considerations<br />Do not upload files which:<br /><ul><li>Violate the law in any way
  • 8. Violate the privacy of others
  • 9. Defame others</li></ul>Compliance with Law Enforcement: <br /><ul><li>These services cooperate with government, law enforcement officials, private parties to enforce and comply with the law.
  • 10. Your account could be subpoenaed! </li></ul>6<br />
  • 11. Mine or yours? Who really owns files stored on Cloud Services?<br /><ul><li>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.
  • 12. Most employees cannot even access your files: only a select few can review your account for legal compliance to a subpoena.
  • 13. Service provider does not have to notify the account holder if their account was searched. </li></ul>7<br />
  • 14. The “What If” Considerations<br />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. <br />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. <br />8<br />
  • 15. Never put anything on your account that would be devastating if it was compromised <br />Banking passwords<br />Confidential Reports<br />Risqué photos<br />9<br />
  • 16. Summation <br />References<br /><ul><li>DropboxvsSugarSync (Pros and Cons)http://windows7themes.net/dropbox-vs-sugarsync-pros-and-cons.html
