HI,

How do we ensure datasecurity of our clients data, if we share the work through Upwork to the freelancers ? NDA may be a solution to the freelancers, but do we need to share the data with Upwork platform ?

You are in no way required to share information or files through Upwork.

 

Upwork is not a tool for maintaining data security. It is a tool that lets clients find, hire, and pay freelancers.

 

re: "NDA may be a solution to the freelancers, but do we need to share the data with Upwork platform?"

 

An NDA is a document with which you express your desire that freelancers who work on your project do not share information with other people. An NDA is not a technical tool for maintaining data security.

 

re: "...do we need to share the data with Upwork platform?"


No.

You do not need to share data with Upwork.

 

Frankly, Upwork has no interest in your data. They don't ask for your data. Upwork does not ask anyone to share files through the platform. Upwork doesn't require that its uses communicate through the platform. The only thing that Upwork requires is that your payments to the freelancer go through the platform.

My clients and I share data through Dropbox exclusively.
