Cloud Providers and Cyber Security

Law firms using cloud-based computing take heed. In a Forbes guest blog post Marc Maiffret warns,

“It’s clear that organizations that outsource to a cloud vendor often times make their choices based on price instead of security. Despite the undoubted advantages to efficiency and cost effectiveness, leveraging a cloud provider unfortunately welcomes many risks as well. While many C-level non-IT executives look to openly embrace cloud environments, security executives walk with much more trepidation.”

Bottom line: find a cloud provider that allows your firm to perform independent security assessments to ensure that your client and case data is well-protected from would-be cyber criminals. Otherwise your investment could cost you more than ever expected if you’re breached.
