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. Although the opinion is designed for attorneys, the general principles are applicable to other businesses as well. In its opinion, the committee advised attorneys to select a proper cloud computing vendor; protect client confidentiality and property; appropriately supervise the vendor; and communicate with the client.

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