Josh Feinblum“Dropbox began taking proactive action to protect their users nearly a week before information about this leak became public. Their customer-first approach was refreshing and likely mitigated a great deal of risk to their users. Their response to a challenging event is a great model for other cloud companies to follow if faced with a similar situation. It’s our belief that the open dialogue about security that companies like Dropbox are promoting about risk, mitigation, and action, will help to strengthen the security and technology communities.”
