Reviewing and Drafting IT Agreements - 1 CLE hour

Virtually every organization outsources it information technology (IT) functions to third-party vendors.  Electronic files of every time – documents, video, audio – are stored on servers owned by or leased from others, located at off-site locations, and attended to by various technical personnel employed by others. Email and increasingly complex telecom systems are also often provided by third-parties.  The idea behind all this is that when IT is outsourced costs might be reduced but certainly the many complications of managing these interconnected systems become someone else’s problem.  But just as the technology outsourced is both necessary and complicated, so are the underlying agreements between your clients and these IT vendors.  There are issues of performance and reliability, data security and privacy breaches, and warranty and indemnity.  This program will provide you with a practical guide to negotiating and drafting IT agreements with third-party vendors.
