Can an attorney use a cloud computing service and comply with Rule 1.6?
Model Rule 1.6 is an important rule that comes into play quite a bit when it comes to outsourcing. Tie together competent selection and disclosure and consent. Make sure proper data security safeguards are in place, and that there is a secure method of communication/transfer. A best practice is to obtain informed consent before disclosing client confidences to LPO. Cloud computing currently expressly ethically accepted in 19 states. The key is to take reasonable steps to ensure client information will be kept confidential and that cloud vendor/methodology is secure.
