Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

These can vary from simple issues of how passwords are sent, if the site uses https> ssl to complex issues like if the site does virus scans on all files uploaded or if the files are encrypted, who has physical access to the storage servers etc From a governance perspective it may be that your organisation may have policies which do not allow for data to be stored outside of national boundries in which case you would need to vet every supplier of cloud file storage to see where it is physically hosted if that is the case.
