Sourcing Interest Group (SIG)

Cloud computing has become an attractive way for many businesses to reduce their business and technology sourcing costs and gain access to cutting edge technology solutions. However, there are issues unique to cloud computing that must be understood and addressed in contracting for cloud-based services. Mayer Brown presenters Dan Masur and Linda Rhodes will address the contracting challenges presented by data privacy, data security and other cloud-specific issues, the alignment of requested contract terms with the criticality of the software, data and services involved, the use of outsourcing, software and data use precedent in cloud contracting, and the impact of the requested cloud delivery model on the availability of desired contract terms.
