Program Description

Both the private and public sectors are racing to move data to the cloud in order to take advantage of many of the opportunities it affords.  But this transformation to cloud computing poses many significant legal and practical challenges, including information governance controls, cybersecurity, and e-discovery obligations.  In this session, we will provide a basic understanding of the various cloud computing service and deployment models and their differences.  We will then discuss the legal implications of moving data to the cloud and how to analyze them and mitigate risk.  We will also discuss security issues and how they can be addressed.

CLE Credit

States typically decide whether a program qualifies for MCLE credit in their jurisdiction 4-8 weeks after the program application is submitted. For many live events, credit approval is not received prior to the program.
