Cloud Computing Contracts: How Banks Can Get the Best Terms

Legal & Regulatory Compliance

Cloud computing has become the central IT tool for financial institutions, yet few banks really understand cloud services contracts. Many, in fact, still address these agreements with an old on-premise software licensing script. Successful IT management demands better contracts. In this session, we’ll explore the key issues at stake in contracts for software-as-a-service (SaaS) and other forms of cloud computing. The goal is to teach bank staff to draft and negotiate these contracts better, faster, and with more confidence.  We’ll cover data rights, IP indemnities, data breach indemnities, service level agreements, vendor compliance, and much more.

Who Should Attend: Risk Professionals, Chief Technology Officer, Bank Director, Chief Compliance Officer, Compliance Professionals
