Podcast on ethics issues related to cloud computing

Back in 2014 I wrote a short article about ethical issues related to cloud computing.  See here.  Since then, obviously, the practice of using "the cloud" and other technological advances have continued to play an important part of the practice of law.  Accordingly, the ABA amended the comment to Model Rule 1.1 on competence to make clear that the duty of competence includes a duty to keep abreast of the benefits and risks associated with relevant "technology."   Since then, a majority of the states have adopted the change.

Which brings me to today's post.  As a good refresher on the issues related to cloud computing, the Legal Talk Network has published a new podcast in which hosts Sharon Nelson and Jim Calloway talk to Lucian Pera about the ethics of lawyers using the cloud and how they can use it with confidence. They break down the different cloud providers, the dangers that can potentially crop up when using the cloud, and the importance of having a technology mentor that lawyers can turn to with questions whenever they need it.
