The Massachusetts Bar Association held its Eighth Annual In-House Counsel Conference today (Dec. 9) at its Boston headquarters. "Doing Business in the Electronic Age" focused on how changes that include electronic communication and cloud computing affect the way businesses keep records, set policies and organize their processes.

Keynote speaker Krish Gupta, vice president and deputy general counsel at EMC Corporation in Hopkinton, said the future of businesses are changing because of the need for virtualization and cloud computing. Business legal departments must take that into account when they set up policies and procedures.
