Nearly half of those polled at Infosec Europe last week reported that they use cloud storage services such as Dropbox, but an even bigger number think such services potentially open up security holes.

The demand for cloud services in the workplace is growing. That's evidenced by the results of the poll, in which Sophos found that 45 percent of 214 conference attendees are using the services for work.

I wonder if the apprehension at using cloud storage affects the actual data/files that users are willing to store in the 'cloud'?
