Discuss risk balancing early in cloud contract negotiation.
Southlake, Texas (PRWEB) January 20, 2016
Businesses are focusing on the potential cost savings, profits and agility to be found in the cloud. Cloud contracts expose both the client and the service provider to risks not present in more traditional technology service or software transactions. The transformation from on-premises software deployments to cloud based models has widespread implication for data privacy, security, and regulatory compliance.
On January 27th, Robert J. Scott, Managing Partner, will present “Cloud Contracts to Minimize Risks”. He will share suggestions on how each party in a cloud contract can mitigate, balance or transfer 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:
- GLBA Rules Effecting Cloud Contracts
- Using Cloud Services in Healthcare
- Due Diligence Obligations in Selecting Cloud Vendors
- Negotiating Key Provisions including insurance, indemnity, and limitations of liability
- How to Comply with Oversight Regulations involving Cloud Service Providers
