"I imagine your IT dept will have conniptions about the idea! I think we have some paid cloud collaboration service for guarantee of security. Dropbox and Google Drive are a definite no-no."

"Hi Scott I think you missed a crucial word? Re.a forum, I'd suggest maybe use Facebook as many people might already have an account - you can set up a private group. The only downside is I have come across some people who have an objection to…"
