Information Storage: Keeping Our Heads in the Clouds

This 90 minute web seminar was originally presented live on October 11, 2011.

Lawyers are moving toward “cloud-computing” rather than traditional computing options. There are many benefits to be sure. But, what problems, if any, are associated with this trend in running a law office? This session will focus on one aspect of this phenomenon; storage of information in the Cloud. Issues to be addressed include:

  • What Is “Cloud-Computing”?
  • What are Common Cloud-Computing Services?
  • Advantages and Disadvantages Are Associated with Reliance on Cloud Storage
  • The Ethical Issues of Cloud-Computing
  • Cloud storage dos and dont's
  • Security Measures for the Cloud-Connected Law Office
