Internet Web Site Blocking
Yes, it can happen. Pakistan blocked access to Facebook last month. Turkey has blocked thousands of sites. Most recently, Pakistan announced that it is monitoring search engines for anti-islamic content. And we are all familiar with Google's woes in China. The point is that, if a web sites are vulnerable in these cases, they are vulnerable in all cases. If you store your data on a server - there is always a chance that it could be blocked when you need it most. Make sure you keep a copy of your important data encrypted and in your own possession. Don't rely exclusively on outside server's to protect it for you. My Data Guard can help here. It encrypts and stores your personal data locally, so you always have access to it.
