About This Webinar

Today, the cloud is ubiquitous. Even those who do not understand the technology, likely use it on a daily basis through services such as Microsoft Suite, Google Drive, or iCloud. Cloud computing has proven to be incredibly useful with the increase in remote work, as it enables organizations to store and access data remotely in a one-stop-shop accessible to all members of a team. To that end, cloud computing has become an important resource for legal teams, as it has the potential to improve the efficiency of the eDiscovery process while reducing its cost, supporting teams in managing the increasing amounts of data involved in litigations.

They clarify the different types of services and examples of their applications. After this thorough background, the panelists will review the benefits of using cloud computing in a litigation, highlighting its advantages for security, cost, accessibility, and ease of scalability.
