Cloud computing is one of the most important trends in computing. If you are wondering what cloud computing is, consider it to be like your Gmail or Yahoo email account. All of your programs and files that you typically access from your computer are available on a web-based platform – or “in the cloud” – accessible from any computer.
As more and more people and organizations move into the cloud, the legal concerns grow. Concerns regarding security, regulatory issues, and intellectual property. West LegalEdcenter has produced a series of webcasts with speakers from DLA Piper to explain some of the issues that moving to cloud-based services bring.
