Cloud Computing: Business as Usual in the Face of Disaster
Cloud Computing: Business as Usual in the Face of Disaster | MyCase Blog.
In case you needed another reason to bring your practice into the cloud, Nikki Black makes a strong case here. Skeptics may say that she has a vested interest, since she works for a cloud company; however, she wrote the book on cloud computing, before she ever set foot in MyCase headquarters. The cloud computing skeptics remind me of the ones who said email wasn't secure. I got a kick out of countering with the argument that they were claiming a piece of paper in a paper envelope handed to a postal employee was more secure? Of course there are risks to cloud computing. I am doing most of my law practice in the cloud; but, I keep local backup. And, I still don't put my historical client documents or billing stuff in the cloud. I am, however, really close to doing that, and MyCase is one of three companies that I would have no problem trusting my data to. Movement to the cloud is inevitable. We are already filing our documents and pleadings online in Florida. And, our Supreme Court now mandates that we serve opposing counsel via email.
