Storing sensitive personal data online

It all depends on what data you are looking to secure and why. If you are really concerned for a genuine reason than options are quite limited unfortunately.

 

I am a massive fan of Evernote, they are transparent, reliable and because their business model relies on you paying a fiver a month they have no interest in selling your data.

 

But whichever service you use, there is simply no guarantee.

thanks for suggestions. should have said these are a/v files and there are a total of 4-6 files with total data requirement of c. 22GB; unsure whether this includes duplicate files but they are quite large in their own right.

Chances are, your favourite cloud based storage provider is just a front end to Amazon S3 anyway. Dropbox certainly is. The three main storage providers are Amazon, Microsoft and Google.

 

I'd be far more nervous trusting a small unknown company than one of the big three when it comes to security and uptime.

they have no interest in selling your data. .

 

Slightly off topic but:

I read a while back that a company that will take a sample of your saliva and for ££££s give you a report on your DNA and your origins, have come to an agreement with a pharmaceutical company(after removing personal info) to sell them your DNA results.

 

Heads they win, tails they win.

So how safe is your data.
