Abstract

Cloud computing delivers various benefits to legal departments, law firms, and professional services firms, particularly those operating globally. Driven by the need of greater client expectations and access to data remotely, law firms have started to adopt cloud computing. A low-cost alternative, flexible, and on-demand services are the key features of cloud computing. However, the extent to which law firms should use cloud services is still bleak. Cloud systems, like all IT developments, possesses a new set of risks. The digital transformation of the legal sector raises concerns about how to handle sensitive client data without compromising confidentiality. In this paper, we summarise factors that drive the adoption of cloud by law firms, issues faced in handling sensitive data, challenges in cloud adoption, and emerging techniques for secured cloud storage.
