Newton remarks: “An ever-increasing number of solo, small and mid-size law firms are migrating to the cloud to enjoy the benefits and convenience of web-based software and anywhere accessibility. However, lawyers need to ensure they are carefully assessing that their prospective cloud providers have adopted best practices relating to data availability, security and privacy. I am pleased to provide this educational seminar for New York attorneys so they can make informed decisions when it comes to selecting a cloud-based service provider.”
