Cloud Computing 101


Welcome to a 30,000 foot view of computing in the cloud. This course is a beginner’s course for those who have heard about cloud computing, but don't really know what it is. Chances are you are already working in the cloud and just don't realize it.

Cloud computing "for the masses" is approximately 19 years old. Some, but not all state bar associations or legal ethics boards have published ethics opinions on whether it is ethical for lawyers to work in the cloud. We will learn about how working in the cloud is viewed from their perspective.

We will also look at how lawyers are using the cloud; its benefits and risks; and finally, the lawyer’s ethical responsibility when migrating to the cloud.

Good informational materials on cloud computing.

Valuable information provided in an easy to understand format.

Before this CLE, I had no real grasp on what the "cloud" is or what lawyers' ethical obligations are with regards to the cloud. Now, I feel that I actually understand what the cloud is and what TN lawyers' responsibilities are in connection thereto.

This topic was one with which I had very little background. This course helped me to understand the benefits and risks associated with the technology and gave me tools with which to evaluate potential vendors.

It was great.

Overall solid info some novices who really are just learning what cloud computing is. 

I learned that there are several considerations we should have before picking a cloud service provider
