As the business owner, manager or someone with responsibility for IT systems security, the apathy shown towards your business' security should scare you. And if it doesn't then something is wrong!

As part of the Ingram Micro Cloud Seminar, I was invited on stage to discuss Dropbox Business and how, as a Select Partner, Dropbox was helping us as a business and our clients. Here is a transcript of the discussion
