Doubling down: More on two-factor authentication

Last month, we covered the importance of applying two-factor authentication for securing your accounts. This month, as summer passes into fall, two-factor authentication is in the news again.

Dropbox has recently suffered yet another major security snafu, in a consistent line of major security snafus.  In yet another attempt to combat hackers' and open access to Dropbox accounts, Dropbox has added two-factor authentication to its credentialing process. If you have a Dropbox account, turn on two-factor authentication to further secure your uploads. You should also continue to utilize client-side encryption, in order to apply your own encryption keys to files you upload to the cloud.

As we advised last month, if an account has two-factor authentication available, and if it works reasonably well, turn it on. It's just another layer of protection for your confidential or important files.

Other cloud drive services apply two-factor authentication, as well, including Google Drive (via Google account log-in) and SpiderOak. For those that don't, like SugarSync, it's a legitimate factor to consider for an attorney deciding whether or not to use a particular platform.
