The Ethics of Cloud Computing

previous blog post discussed best practices for attorneys and businesses who use “cloud computing” to store information on remote computer servers.

The Ohio State Bar Association’s Professionalism Committee has now issued an informal advisory opinion to give ethical guidance for Ohio attorneys regarding storing client data in the cloud.

Read the full opinion or an excellent discussion in the association’s Ohio Lawyer magazine.
