Extract from article by Doug Austin

In his LawSites blog last week, Bob Ambrogi reported on results from the 2016 Legal Technology Survey Report by the American Bar Association’s Legal Technology Resource Center.  One of the more notable statistics from the report is that just 38 percent of lawyers use cloud computing for law-related tasks.  But, is that really true?

In the report, 53 percent of lawyers say they have not used cloud computing and 10 percent do not know whether they have or not, according to the survey, which the LTRC conducts annually.

Bob goes on to report that of the lawyers who say they do not use cloud computing, 7 percent say they plan to use the cloud within the next 12 months, 3 percent say they plan to within the next two years, 17 percent say they will use it “sometime in future,” and 42 percent say they do not plan ever to use it.

When lawyers who do not use the cloud were asked why, the top reason they gave was “Confidentiality/security concerns at 63 percent.”  But, in-house solutions may not necessarily be more secure.
