Storage of Information in the Cloud

Preti Flaherty employs a cloud-based application to store information in electronic (digital) format concerning the matter(s) we are  handling for our clients. Cloud-based  storage  means much  of the information clients provide the Firm for matters the Firm handles will not be stored within our offices or our network, but rather on a third-party’s servers. This is commonly referred  to as being stored  in the cloud. Client information is encrypted while in transition to that third party’s servers and while at rest in the cloud. While we  cannot  provide any type of guarantee about the security of the information stored in the cloud, we have reviewed the cloud vendor’s terms of use, policies, procedures and practices and have concluded they are compatible with our professional obligations.
