TheVerge: Ways to securely share files in the cloud

The Verge has put together a solid collection of articles on how to deal with the not-so-new realities of working from home, They had me write a piece on how to share your work files and you can read it here. The days when we were all connected to the same shared drive or local network folder are now quaint memories. But today’s sharing files will take some careful planning, particularly if you want to do so as securely as possible.

In my article, I cover the various methods that are available, from sharing a file attached to an email or instant message to using public cloud services like Dropbox to using Google Workspace and Microsoft OneDrive. But the best solution is a group of business-related cloud services that I summarize in this chart.
