Cloud Computing Policy and Legal Issues

Thursday, February 18 | 4:30PM–5:30PM | Capitol View Terrace
Session Type: Professional Development
As institutions explore alternative IT sourcing strategies, including cloud computing, a variety of policy and legal issues must be carefully considered as part of the planning process. The privacy and security implications of outsourced data handling, federated identity management for software as a service, contract terms and conditions, and intellectual property rights are among the many challenges to be addressed. This discussion session will provide an overview of the policy and legal issues to consider and an opportunity to share effective practices and solutions.
