There is a significant amount at stake for companies that enter into cloud deals. Risks start with data access and privacy concerns and extend through service level agreements, reputational risks and to applicable federal and state laws. What provisions must a company’s contracts contain in order to protect it in today's shifting legal and IT landscape? What are the key cloud risks and concerns that every company should evaluate prior to entering a deal that involves cloud-based services? In this highly practical and engaging presentation especially for corporate counsel, Matt Karlyn of Foley & Lardner LLP addresses the key concerns and risks associated with cloud-based IT transactions, discusses and evaluates the provisions that are typically seen in cloud-based IT transactions, and covers those provisions that companies should include in their contracts.
