Business owners need to be aware of cloud computing issues.

Many (and probably most) computer users (including small to medium sized businesses) do not maintain all of their software or data on their computers or on a local server, but rather they use a offsite or internet based application or an online distributed software or storage service that is at a remote location (or in a cloud) such as Google or Yahoo! mail, Amazon, Skype, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc., etc., etc. Cost savings, data storage options and convenience are key reasons why small to medium sized businesses use these services. However a significant issue for small to medium sized business owners and for the individual users of cloud computing services is that the providers of these services tend to contractually disclaim all liability for loss of data or for any legal issues that may arise from the use of such services. Legal issues of course could involve: electronic discovery (e-discovery) related to litigation, privacy and third party access concerns, loss of data and Fourth Amendment issues to name but a few. For additional information or suggestions on how to address some of these concerns with a vendor of cloud computing services you may want to click on one of the following links: http://www.forbes.com/2010/04/12/cloud-computing-enterprise-technology-c... or http://information-security-resources.com/2009/06/17/legal-issues-are-ha...
