This evening, the Maricopa County Bar Association Solo and Small Firm section is sponsoring a CLE seminar on the security and ethics of cloud computing. Our CEO and co-founder, Jack Newton, will discuss the following:
- Data security
- Data ownership
- Storage of confidential client records
- Due diligence
However, such areas just cover the technical aspects for using cloud computing applications in your law practice. As lawyers, you also have an ethical duty, and so he will also discuss current ethics opinions pertaining to the use of cloud computing, or Software-as-a-Service, and the risks all lawyers need to consider and mitigate in vetting prospective cloud vendors.
