Webinar: Protecting your cloud projects
18th August 2020
As with all sectors, the NHS is rapidly moving systems, services and content to the cloud, and suppliers are forever extolling the virtues of this approach. But it is worth pausing to reflect on the specific things we should be looking out for from a legal and liability perspective when procuring and contracting for such services.
Register now to join IT specialist lawyer Nathan Bilton at our webinar “Protecting your cloud projects” on Tuesday 18th August at 10am. In just 45 minutes, he will provide a rapid overview of cloud computing, its risks and benefits, and a breakdown of the types of cloud computing that exist – SaaS, PaaS and IaaS. He will then give an overview of the contracting process, looking at the options of relying on the suppliers’ standard T&Cs versus entering a bespoke contract. Nathan will indicate when you should insist on the latter. He will also detail the main issues to cover in a negotiation, taking a practical look from both the customer and supplier sides. He will finish with an overview of what due diligence customers should carry out on suppliers before entering such an arrangement. I will also be on hand to consider any procurement queries you may have.
Aimed at directors and managers with responsibility for IT, as well as procurement specialists required to manage cloud procurement exercises, it will help you prepare and ensure that you put in place successful cloud projects.
So register now to join Nathan and Melanie Pears on Tuesday 18th August at 10am online via Zoom.
