More Cautions for Lawyers Using Dropbox

The technology publication CRN reports that Dropbox executives have acknowledged to it that  Dropbox for Teams cloud storage service does not meet the requirements of Payment Card Industry (PCI), the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) or the Sarbanes-Oxley law.

This latest Dropbox product offering is touted as a business grade version of the popular consumer Dropbox offering.
