Do lawyers understand cloud computing?
Cloud computing. A term regularly discussed in the technology arena, but what does it really mean to legal professionals? The common definition is the delivery of hosting data and other services over the Internet. But instead of storing data on your servers in the office basement, the data and applications are stored remotely, with access to these through the Internet.
Now that you may be able to at least have a basic conversation with your IT professional, there is still much to understand and consider regarding cloud computing.

The series highlights the landscape of cloud computing, the factors legal professionals must consider, choosing a provider, implementation, security, concerns, privilege concerns and more.
