Don't fear the cloud

Ernie the Attorney recently had a thought-provoking posting on his blog regarding the, for lack of a better word, double-standard, that many attorneys have regarding the cloud.

Essentially, many attorneys are fearful of the cloud and using cloud-based systems, like Online Legal Software, because of the perceived security risk.

While the security of your data is important, many of these same attorneys don’t think twice to use cloud based email providers or calendars, or use unsecured wireless connections, to talk on cell phones in public regarding their client matters, or fail to back-up (or meaningfully back-up) their data.

Every single one of these actions could be more problematic then using a cloud-based practice management system.

Don’t be careless, of course, but don’t fear the cloud.
