The Diplomatic Council has created a Cloud Sync& Share Services report in collaboration with the National Initiative for Information and Internet Security (NIFIS). The Diplomatic Council is a global think tank with consultative status with the United Nations. The NIFIS is an independent self-help organization that provides technical, organizational and legal support to businesses to help them in the fight against the ever- growing number of threats from the internet.
The report was compiled due to a growing demand from members for an impartial comparison of IT services that offer a secure and reliable means of exchanging data over the internet (the cloud). In particular, the apparent “rampant activities of the intelligence services”, the rise in cybercrime including industrial espionage, and the legal uncertainty surrounding some global data protection regulations have resulted in increasing requests for us to recommend individual services.
