Lawyers increasingly engaged in procurement of cloud services

18 September 2012:  The Age Online reports that Microsoft’s cloud principal program manager, Jeff Woolsey, has confirmed that many businesses are now seeking comprehensive legal advice before adopting cloud computing services.

Mr Woolsey states that ”[Customers want to] understand how much or how little risk it is, or if it’s even a concern.” Mr Woolsey also estimated that roughly 90 per cent of the cloud discussions now covered potential security breaches and service outages.
