  •  I'm on a couple of legal committees re: (14+ / 0-)

    using technology in the law office.

    A couple of vendor keept saying, "Oh nose, we are so safe and encrypted that no one in a million billion years  could ever break our codes."  when i expressed some doubt, they became very angry. I tried to ban me from the committee.

    My advice for all lawyers is that anything secret or confidential NEVER be put online with iCloud, dropbox or Google Drive.

    What we call god is merely a living creature with superior technology & understanding. If their fragile egos demand prayer, they lose that superiority.

      ... regardless of their vocation.  The internet and email have never been secure, and trusting a third party to host your confidential documents has never made sense to me (especially if you're using a "free" service and expecting something for nothing - you always get what you pay for).

      That said, the internet is still the best way to communicate and conduct business for 99.99% of a person's (or company's) needs.  There simply isn't an alternative.  More importantly, your law firm's (or anyone's) secret and confidential records are still, and always, going to be more susceptible to breach from inside your company than outside of it.  Whether or not the NSA exists as it is after these "disclosures", spies are still going to spy.
