It is secure and I have associates who use it for that reason. You need to Password Protect the access and have a strong secure password. Given that, it works.

I would advise encrypting the data first.
When you put your private data on a server that you don't control, encryption is the sensible thing to do.

I think you'll need Dropbox for Business for that.

You can use Dropbox for Business and, yes, I have colleagues using Dropbox for business fines. Secure the access and you should be fine.
