Cloud computing presents numerous legal issues.
Southlake, TX (PRWEB) March 21, 2012
“Cloud computing is exploding. Its advantage are many. There’s another aspect to the cloud, and it is the numerous legal issues cloud computing presents to businesses,” said Robert J. Scott, Managing Partner of Scott & Scott, LLP, an intellectual property and technology law firm.
On the surface, cloud agreements are similar to traditional technology licensing and services agreements; however, cloud computing engagements expose both the client and the service provider to risks not present in more traditional technology transactions. At the top of the list of unique cloud risks are the legislative topics-du-jour: privacy and security regulatory compliance.
On April 2, at 1:00 PM, Scott will share suggestions at the SNW Spring 2012 Dallas Conference on how each party can mitigate, balance or otherwise eliminate the privacy and security risks in cloud computing.
Based on Rob's extensive experience negotiating cloud computing agreements, he will address each element that contributes to privacy and security risk in cloud computing, including:
*What happens if there is a data loss?
*What broad or industry-specific regulatory issues affect the business?
*What jurisdiction will prevail if there is litigation?
*What indemnification does the vendor offer for infringement of third-party intellectual property rights or data breach?
