Cloud Adoption: Managing the Legals

Kemp IT Law hosted a breakfast seminar on Cloud Adoption in June 2017.

We have also produced and white paper and blog on this topic.

Seminar details:

The Cloud is in the mainstream. IT on-prem is migrating in-cloud and providing attractive benefits like provisioning flexibility, access to new services, assisting digital transformation, speed of deployment and cost efficiencies.

But business operates in an increasingly intrusive legal and regulatory environment that emphasises the criticality of data security, sovereignty, residency, privacy and rights. Successfully migrating IT workloads to the cloud means effectively managing these ‘legals’ to secure the benefits.

Working with global and specialist cloud service providers and with enterprise and SME cloud users, top IT law specialist Kemp IT Law has a genuine understanding for the range of contractual, legal, regulatory and policy issues that users need to manage in their cloud service contracting.  Kemp IT Law solicitor Deirdre Moynihan will discuss current hot topic issues in cloud contracting; and Richard Kemp, widely regarded as one of the country’s top cloud lawyers, will review the range of operational and policy legal and regulatory issues that should be on cloud customers’ legal checklists. This is not a GDPR seminar!
