Above & Beyond News from The Common Source
The Sky is the Limit.  As an attorney, you make countless decisions every day. The consequences of these choices can positively or negatively impact you and your clients. The first step to making the right choice is to define the “line” you shouldn’t cross when taking a risk. As cloud computing increases in popularity, it’s becoming more important for legal professionals to find the limit when it comes to storing and retrieving data.    At The Common Source, we believe that the “line” is clear—attorneys should not allow their document repository to be left “up in the air” to potential problems. While there may be advantages to cloud computing such as convenience and cost, the dangers it presents far outweigh the benefits. From information being stored in unfamiliar locations to denying yourself of any right to privacy, there are many disadvantages to relying on cloud computing for obtaining and archiving documents.  There are many concerns legal professionals should take into consideration, including: • Security: Do you know where the information is physically stored? • Disposal: How can you rest assured that when a “disposal” order is given that everything is disposed of properly? • Jurisdiction: Data stored on computers outside of the U.S. could be subject to different privacy rules. Think about it this way: As an attorney, you rely on a secure storage location for physical evidence. It only makes sense that you expect the same thing for storing data. Don’t take a risk when it comes to storing and retrieving your litigation documents. Trust the professionals.  At The Common Source, your data is constantly in our sole care, custody and control—not floating in the “clouds.” To learn more about our trusted services, [CLICK HERE] [www.commonsource.com/services]
