Topic: Reframing the Mindframe – Cloud Computing and The New Business Paradigm

Cloud computing, a new model for the provision of outsourcing services, is hailed as “the new way” for businesses to capture operational efficiencies and open up new markets. Service providers cite the cloud’s rapid, on-demand scalability and reduced capital expenditures. But there are significant legal issues in shifting such services to cloud, including data security and privacy concerns, regulatory compliance issues, jurisdictional considerations and unique contractual issues. The TechVenture Law Committee and its panel of experts participated in a round table discussion addressing these issues and more in this exciting area of information technology.
