Negotiating Cloud Computing Contracts

May 18, 2021

11:00 AM ET // 5:00 PM CET



This webinar is hosted by the ITechLaw Technology Sourcing Committee


The session will focus on a pragmatic way to negotiate the cloud computing contracts including the often tricky aspect of audit rights.  The speakers will explore the concerns of cloud vendors and customers and provide practical guidance about what provisions may be negotiable, and how to manage and mitigate risks, especially around those provisions which cloud vendors rarely move on.  The session will consider how far cloud vendors are willing to go to address regulatory requirements for customers of cloud services to ensure that customers and/or the relevant regulator have a right to conduct audits.
