Really good to see the issues around tackling Cloud in Law being addressed.

I work as a consultant with a Google Apps Partner. As such it is almost impossible to get a foot in the door of most firms due to the data location.

Question - do you think it's simply a case of regulations and legislations needing to catch up with what technology now allows lawyers to do?

If so... do you see this happening?

I was speaking to a DPA specialist the other week... she has seen many instances where a lawyer will store work on a portable device (USB normally) and carry it outside of the EEA. Technically this data is then being stored in breach of the EU Regulations.

Not only does a cloud model negate the need for USB's which are a huge security issue, but it also allows for this kind of working, which... by now, we all want to/need to be able to do.
