Cloud computing has become a veritable choice of IT platform for lawyers globally. With this trend, Law firms have begun the movement of their IT processing and data to servers located outside their law offices, having seen the need for Cloud as an appropriate choice given its flexibility and affordability and an effective alternative to traditional or ‘on premise’ server and desktop-based platforms.
Despite these benefits, there are still concerns that the adoption of cloud technology by law firms may bring with it security, confidentiality and data protection issues. Regardless of what technology you implement at your law firm, all lawyers are bound to their professional duties with regard to confidentiality rules.
