Obviously, information security and risk management are critical issues for any organization, regardless of its size or the industry in which it participates. But maintaining the security of your information and others’ information that you possess, as well as mitigating the risk associated with data breaches, is difficult and getting tougher all the time. This is particularly true in an era in which employees and contractors increasingly use their personal devices and applications to create and store corporate content.

There are some important questions about your organization’s information security status and practices that you should be asking – and that you should be able to answer quickly:

· Do you know how many users in your organization have installed and are using Dropbox, Microsoft OneDrive, Google Drive or a similar solution to store work-related documents? If so, do you know what data they are storing there? If so, does your corporate IT department have ready access to this content if, for example, an employee leaves the company?archived in compliance with corporate policies?
