How can I secure the contents of my Confluence database (Cloud version)?

Has anyone locked down the contents of their Confluence (Cloud version) instance so that users can't Export the contents (PDF or Word)?

On the Cloud version you can't disable the PDF Export option and I don't see any options to disable the Word Export as well?

We spent thousands of hours creating the contents of our knowledgebase and it seems Confluence has a major security shortcoming by forcing us to leave these two export options open.

Anyone have thoughts?

Hi Jeffrey,

It is not possible in Confluence Cloud to disable exports. We have two feature requests related to this, and I would recommend that you watch both, vote on them to show your interest, and comment on them with your usage case.

In Server, it's possible because you have the ability to disable the individual add-ons that perform the task of exporting, but this is not available in Cloud, thus the reason you have not been able to disable them. 

Let us know if you have any questions about any of this.

Kind Regards,
Shannon
