In March, LawyersUSA reviewed my latest ABA book "Cloud Computing for Lawyers." This book provides lawyers with an overview of the issues they need to understand when using cloud computing in their law practices.
Here are a few choice excerpts from the review:
This book surveys all the major considerations--risks, benefits, ethical pitfalls and practical advantages--of practicing law in the cloud, especially for solo and small firm lawyers who don't have access to an in-house IT department...
Especially useful are checklists and detailed questions to ask when shopping for cloud proivders--questions that incorporate many of the practical, ethical, privacy, and security issues the book raises.
Black also offers a full chapter summarizing and comparing some of the better-known cloud computing apps for law practice management, virtual office practice, data storage, email encryption, and digital dictation...
If this sounds like a book that you might find useful, you can purchase it here.
