Conference Agenda

This live and interactive 4 hour conference will cover the following:

10am-11am: Protecting Personal Data in the Cloud

Robert Bond, Bristows LLP

As we use cloud services for so many of our business and our personal needs we must consider the impact this may have on our personal data. The increase in regulatory enforcements and the guidance from the European Data Protection Board on the duties and controllers and processors, means that whilst the cloud offers convenience and efficiencies, it also brings with it legal and compliance risks.

This session will include:

  • When personal data is in the cloud
  • What are the roles of cloud providers under data protection laws
  • How can data subjects exercise their rights
  • Why data protection is important

AM break

11.10am -12.10pm: The Cloud & Data Transfers

Robert Bond, Bristows LLP

Following the decision in Schrems II, the subsequent guidance from the European Data Protection Board, the publication of new EU Standard Contractual Clauses and draft UK specific data transfer documents, it is important to consider these when contracting for cloud services.

This session will include:

  • Data transfer issues post Schrems II
  • Using the new EU SCCs
  • Data Transfer Assessments
  • UK specific issues

12:10pm -1:10pm: Intellectual Property in Works Created by Artificial Intelligence

Lorna Brazell, Osborne Clarke

Many complex AI programs are powered by cloud computing because they require internet-wide connectivity to access the rest of the online world, to enable machine learning.

Further, Software-as-a-Service platforms enable users on just about any budget and with any level of skill to access machine learning functions such as image recognition tools, language processing, and recommendation engines.

AI-assisted development of apps will soon be routine. But who will own any intellectual property rights in such works?

This session will include:

  • Is AI-invented technology patentable? The DABUS disputes
  • Does copyright subsist in non-human-authored 'works'?
  • If the solution is legal personhood for AIs, what would that look like?
  • How existing cloud contracts handle AI IP

Break for lunch

2:00pm-3:00pm: Data Loss and Data Breaches in Cloud Computing

Jimmy Desai, Keystone Law

Although cloud computing has a lot of advantages, many companies are concerned about what will happen if their data is lost, damaged or stolen.

This session will include:

  • What kind of contractual terms will help to reduce risks regarding data loss, damage or theft?
  • What have the repercussions been in cases where data has been lost, damaged or stolen?
  • What practical steps can be taken to ensure data is kept safely and securely?
  • What fines and penalties apply if an organisation loses data?
  • What compensation might be due to customers if their data is lost, damaged or stolen?
  • Can this kind of data loss be insured against and what are the limitations on such insurance?
