Dropbox uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and AES-256 bit encryption to protect the data. Your files are encrypted during both transfer and storage. You can use other encryption programs to add an extra layer of encryption for even better security.
Legal documents can be shared via Dropbox and can actually be legally signed by using a signing program such as Docusign. This can save time and can be especially effective when dealing with clients that are located hundreds of miles away and meeting face-to-face is not an option.
With these security measures activated, client data can now be protected behind a force of SSL, double encryption, two-step authentication and a strong password. Client information is sensitive and must remain confidential. Dropbox has the security to keep the data secure but you must do your part by activating the additional security measures, creating strong passwords and keeping your password and encryption keys private and secured.
