Is your organization ready to outsource your operations on or to do business on the Cloud?

Cloud based offerings are no longer novel but there are a host of considerations that you must take into account. How do you ensure that your organization is prepared to take advantage of a cloud offering? Join Jonathan Leibtag (Microsoft), Charlie Bingham (Microsoft), Christopher Ferguson (Sirius XM Canada) and Andrew Alleyne (Fasken Martineau) to learn the top ten matters that companies and vendors need to take into account when contracting for Cloud services.

At the end of this session you will have learned about:

  • Considerations as to whether a Cloud offering is appropriate for your organization
  • Applicable regulatory and jurisdictional considerations
  • Data privacy and data protection
  • Negotiation concerns for legal terms and conditions
  • Data incident and breach responses including cyber insurance

And a number of other key legal and compliance issues relating to the Cloud.
