2 Sammy Ford I represent plaintiffs who have been hurt. I am board certified in Personal Injury Trial Law and handle catastrophic personal injury cases, but I also practice construction, securities, and complex commercial litigation, for companies and individuals. I am a native Houstonian and attended St. Thomas High School where I currently serve on the board. I went to Harvard and graduated with high honors, magna cum laude, in At Harvard, I served as Historian of the Harvard Political Union, the College's debating society, and as Secretary of Harvard CHANCE, a group dedicated to mentoring and tutoring students from Cambridge Rindge and Latin School. While participating in the leadership of CHANCE, I also helped two recently-immigrated students prepare for their English as a Second Language exam. After graduating from college, I came back to Texas for law school, finishing with Honors from the University of Texas School of Law in During my time there, I served as Development Editor of The Review of Litigation and as Chair of the Career Services Committee of the Thurgood Marshall Legal Society. In my final year, I participated in the school s first Supreme Court Clinic. We convinced the United States Supreme Court to review our client's case during a term in which the Court agreed to hear only 78 of the 8,517 cases filed. After graduation, I returned to Houston to clerk for the Honorable Jerry E. Smith of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. During my time with Fifth Circuit, I worked on cases ranging from insurance law to administrative law to one of the most watched white-collar criminal cases of the 21st century. I then worked for two years at the Houston trial firm that pioneered contingent-fee commercial litigation, handling bet-the-company litigation. I am active in the community as a member of the local and state bar associations and the local, state, and national trial lawyer associations. I currently serve as a member of the State Bar's Computer and Technology Section Council, the Houston Lawyer magazine's editorial board, and the Houston Bar Association's Law Week Committee. When I am not working on behalf of my clients, I am active with travel, book collecting, and trying new and interesting restaurants.

11 Two Views of the Cloud: Overview Cloud File Server
12 Two Views of the Cloud: Client Cloud Server Cloud File Server Cloud Applications Client
13 Cloud: What is it? Definition: A decentralized model for access to shared computer resources. Key Characteristics: On Demand Self Service Network Access Resource Sharing Measurable Elastic
14 Cloud: Delivery Models Software as a Service o o Applications o Office 365 o Google Storage Infrastructure as a Service o o o o Secure Data Center Storage You rent hardware or space Co-location
15 Cloud: Why try it? Cost Savings o Pay overtime, not upfront Remote Access Syncronization Increased Security o Physical security, data backups, redundant power Advanced technologies and upgrades
17 Texas Rules of Professional Conduct Rule 1.01: Attorney has obligation to have competence in the performance of his/her duties. Rule 1.05: Attorney has obligation to protect and preserve the confidential information of his/her client. Rule 1.14: Attorney has obligation to safeguard the client s property.
18 ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct Rule 1.1 Competence: A lawyer shall provide competent representation to a client. Competent representation requires the legal knowledge, skill, thoroughness and preparation reasonably necessary for the representation. Comment 8: To maintain the requisite knowledge and skill, a lawyer should keep abreast of changes in law and its practice, including the benefits and risks associated with relevant technology, engage in continuing study and education and comply with with all continuing legal education requirement to which the lawyer is subject.
19 Cont. Rule 1.6 Confidentiality of Information: (c) A lawyer shall make reasonable efforts to prevent the inadvertent or unauthorized disclosure of, or unauthorized access to, information relating to the representation of a client. [Subsection (c) added August 2012]
20 ABA: Cloud Broadly defined, cloud computing (or "Software as a Service") refers to a category of software that's delivered over the Internet via a Web browser (like Internet Explorer) rather than installed directly onto the user's computer. The cloud offers certain advantages in terms of minimal upfront costs, flexibility and mobility, and ease of use. Because cloud computing places data--including client data--on remote servers outside of the lawyer's direct control, it has given rise to some concerns regarding its acceptability under applicable ethics rules. harts_fyis/cloud-ethics-chart.html
21 ABA s Question How does the vendor safeguard the privacy/confidentiality of stored data? How often is the user's data backed up? Does the vendor backup data in multiple data centers in different geographic locations to safeguard against natural disaster? What is the history of the vendor? Where do they derive their funding? How stable are they financially? Can I get my data "off" their servers for my own offline use/backup? If I decide to cancel my subscription to the software, will I get my data? Is data supplied in a non-proprietary format that is compatible with other software? Does the vendor's Terms of Service or Service Level Agreement address confidentiality and security? If not, would the vendor be willing to sign a confidentiality agreement in keeping with your professional responsibilities?
23 Ethics Opinions Overview All states allow for the use of the cloud Standard: Reasonable Care
24 Ethical Opinions Arizona Opinion Rules 1.1 and 1.6 require an attorney or law firm to take competent and reasonable steps to ensure that the client s confidences are not disclosed to third parties through theft or inadvertence and that the client s electronic information is not destroyed. Lawyers must recognize their own competence limitations regarding security measures and take the necessary time and energy to become competent or alternately consult with available experts in the field.
25 Florida Opinion 10-2 Lawyers who use devices that contain electronic storage must take reasonable steps to ensure that client confidentiality is maintained and to sanitize the device before disposition.
26 Alabama Opinion Lawyers may use cloud computing to store client files if they keep current on the appropriate security safeguards and take reasonable steps to ensure the cloud vendor uses suitable methods to protect the stored data.
27 Connecticut Lawyers ownership and access to the data must not be hindered. Security policies and processes should segregate the lawyer s data to prevent unauthorized access to the data, including by the cloud service provider.
28 Massachusetts Review (and periodically revisit) terms of service, restrictions on access to data, data portability, and vendor's security practices. Follow clients' express instructions regarding use of cloud technology to store or transmit data. For particularly sensitive client information, obtain client approval before storing/transmitting via the internet.
30 Texas Opinion No. 648 April 2015 May a lawyer communicate confidential information by ? o Even if unencrypted? Yes.
31 Attacks on Law Firms FBI and MI5 have both issued warnings to law firms about data security Street crime has gone down as cybercrime has gone up o Why? 85 percent of assets are intangible.
32 Is your law firm safer than cloud providers?
33 Are you safer than Jlaw In May, Jennifer Lawrence joked to MTV: "My icloud keeps telling me to back it up, and I'm like, I don't know how to back you up. Do it yourself."
34 icloud Hack Fall 2014 celebrity hack o Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton Nude photos released How did they gain access? o Hackers guessed their passwords o icloud allowed an unlimited number of retries without locking the user out.
35 Access and Encryption Who can access your cloud? Can employees of the cloud provider access your data? Can you send encrypted data to the cloud? Is the data encrypted on the cloud provider s server?
36 Encrypting Medical Records Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) o Covers protected health information. o Now applies to just about all law firms as a result of HB 300. o Documents and information in the cloud must be encrypted o Encrypt locally and save encrypted files in the cloud o Professional level cloud services encrypt documents in transit and on server
38 Who can get your data? PRISM o What is it? A way for NSA, through FISA subpoena, to get data at rest Companies such as Yahoo, Facebook, Microsoft, and Google participated
39 Government Access Backdoors and disclosure What about encryption? Only as good as the product itself Good reason to encrypt before you send. BULLRUN o NSA (UK counterpart: Edgehill) o Attempt to weaken encryption standards and obtain backdoors and master keys Is data on the internet ever really safe?
41 Litigation Concerns Cloud is new and still trying to figure out appropriate policies Still have duty to preserve and produce data under your possession, custody or control Google Apps for Business with Vault ($10/user/month) archives s and chats, allows for creation of data retention policies, and has e-discovery features (admins can search user's s) What happens if your provider goes away? (Megaupload)
42 Questions to ask oneself The issues which an attorney must consider before using a cloud computing service include the following: Is the provider of cloud computing services a reputable organization? Does the provider offer robust security measures? Such measures must include at a minimum password protections or other verification procedures limiting access to the data; safeguards such as data back-up and restoration, a firewall, or encryption; periodic audits by third parties of the provider's security; and notification procedures in case of a breach. Is the data stored in a format that renders it retrievable as well as secure? Is it stored in a proprietary format and is it promptly and reasonably retrievable by the lawyer in a format acceptable to the client? Who owns the data? Where is the data stored? Does the provider commingle the data?
43 Recommendations Use password or PIN to lock and secure mobile devices Report any lost or stolen devices immediately Blackberry and Firm-approved handheld devices can be remotely wiped Firm laptops use encrypted hard drives Use encrypted removable flash drives for transporting confidential materials
44 THE MOST IMPORTANT POINT YOUR PASSWORD IS THE WEAKEST LINK
45 Wi-Fi Wi-Fi networks with no passwords can be easily intercepted Wi-Fi spoofing is common in high traffic areas like malls, coffee shops and airports o Beware of strangely named and unfamiliar Wi-Fi hot spots Consider using VPN to encrypt communications even over open Wi-Fi networks.
46 Cloud Storage Types Internal o Owned and operated by your in-house IT department o Private External o Owned and operated by someone else; hosted by a third-party o External private server
47 Backup Sync Collaboration Cloud Storage Types
48 Cloud Storage: Privacy Encryption o What is it? o Why is it important? o Encrypted transmission vs. encrypted storage Zero-Knowledge o What is it? o Why is it important? o What are the downsides? None, in theory.
49 File/Folder Encryption What is it? Why use it? Providers o Windows o Adobe o Winzip Cloud providers may produce your data o Provider can t unencrypt file.
50 Cloud Storage: Backup Server Server Server Mozy/Carbonite /Amazon
51 Cloud Storage: Sync
52 Cloud Storage: Sync Most sync services provide file storage and collaboration options as well. o SugarSync o Dropbox
53 Cloud Storage: Collaboration
54 Cloud Storage: Collaboration Not all storage solutions are suitable for collaboration There is a difference between storage and backup and collaboration The most popular storage solutions, however, do provide collaboration; most of those also provide syncing services.
56 Dropbox o Most popular o 2GB 1TB Cloud Storage (Simply) o Boxcryptor Skydrive/Sharepoint o Integrated with MS Office going forward o 7/25GB 125GB o Boxcryptor Google Drive o Integrated with Google Documents/ o Boxcryptor
57 Box.com o 5GB Unlimited; Cloud Storage (Simply) o HIPAA Compliant o Encrypted storage in business accounts o Sync; Collaboration SpiderOak o Zero Knowledge o Probably HIPAA Compliant o SpiderOak's encryption is comprehensive -- even with physical access to the storage servers, SpiderOak staff cannot know even the names of your files and folders. On the server side, all that SpiderOak staff can see, are sequentially numbered containers of encrypted data.
