SRA Competency B D


Cloud computing is becoming mainstream, but many organisations are still in the early stages of using cloud, or discover that their employees are using cloud computing without the knowledge or approval of their organisation's risk and compliance functions.

This new half day course will familiarise delegates with the different types of cloud computing, their key risks, and how they can be mitigated through contract drafting and good practice.

What You Will Learn

This introductory course will cover the following:

  • What is cloud computing?
  • The risks of 'shadow cloud'
  • How cloud differs from traditional sourcing/outsourcing; how organisations move into cloud
  • The different types of cloud computing and how they are commonly used - deployment and service models - public, private, hybrid, community; IaaS, PaaS, SaaS; and 'containers'
  • Key reservations, risks and constraints including security issues, service level agreements (SLAs) and the role of certifications/codes
  • How the type of cloud service affects the approach to cloud procurement and use, including 'shared responsibility', pre-contractual due diligence and the negotiability of cloud contracts
  • The main points to consider when reviewing and negotiating cloud contract terms including liability exclusions/limitations and service credits; security including SLAs and outages, IP rights and data protection compliance
  • The impact on cloud computing of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the likely post-Brexit position. Issues under the EU's 2017 'data economy' legislative proposals will also be covered
  • Practical steps to facilitate moving to the cloud and mitigating the risks including pre-contractual due diligence and post-contractual actions, including backups, insurance and incident response plans
