For many companies, the main question about cloud computing is no longer whether to move their data to the cloud but, given the cost and business advantages, how they can accomplish this transition most effectively. However, the flexibility and easy flow of data that characterize a cloud-based platform can raise challenging issues related to privacy and protection of data. A company's legal obligations and risks will be shaped by the nature of the data to be moved to the cloud, whether it involves personal information, trade secret information, customer data, or other competitively sensitive information.

In the light of recent decisions and guidance on cloud, this seminar will look at the practical implications for companies intending to use cloud-based solutions. By understanding their legal compliance obligations, companies can make informed decisions in selecting and managing cloud computing services that best meet their needs.

The briefing will conclude with a panel discussion on key current concerns.

Topics Will Include:

  • The roles of the parties
  • Types of data to be moved to the cloud
  • Managing your cloud supplier
  • Data management & security

The seminar will be followed by a drinks reception.
