Via Courthouse Libraries BC’s New & Notable current awareness service, the Law Society of BC has released a cloud computing checklist.
From the February e-Brief:
“Lawyers and law firms considering cloud computing should consult the Law Society’s new cloud computing checklist. While cloud computing offers an array of benefits, there are also risks when a lawyer stores data with a third party, including security, privacy and regulatory compliance. The cloud computing checklist details some of the issues lawyers and law firms should consider before moving data into the cloud.”
The 13-page Cloud Computing Checklist looks to be extremely thorough, and covers security and risk management, compliance, due diligence, client implications, IT aspects, reliability, costs, and Law Society considerations.
