The transformation from on-premises software deployments to cloud based models has widespread implication for data privacy, security, and regulatory compliance.

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 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.

Scott, Managing Partner, Scott & Scott, LLP, an intellectual property and technology law firm, will share suggestions on how each party can mitigate, balance or transfer the privacy and security risks in cloud computing at a luncheon meeting hosted by the Dallas Bar Association Computer Law Section on Monday, September 26, at the Belo Mansion, Dallas.

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 Affecting 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
