Cloud Computing is considered by many as a unique IT model for enabling convenient, on-demand, scalable network access to the latest technology without the need to purchase, monitor and maintain onsite IT infrastructure. Unfortunately, in the desire to save costs and jump on the technology bandwagon, many companies are signing up to Cloud agreements without fully understanding the technology risks, business concerns or their legal obligations. This event will review best practices for cloud adoption and is appropriate for corporate directors, officers, corporate counsel and risk managers who need to understand how to achieve the best results while mitigating possible risks.

Participating with Farajun on the panel will be Lisa R. Lifshitz,  Partner with Torkin Manes LLP; David Lloyd, CEO of IntelliResponse; Renny Monaghan, VP, Industry Solutions for; Jay H. Safer,  General Counsel and Secretary for IBM Canada and Victor Garcia, CTO, HP Canada. Topics discussed will include an overview of the Cloud and discussion of business and legal trends as well as the technical benefits of Cloud Computing. Attendees will collaborate with event experts to discover if Cloud computing is right for their company and learn the various Cloud deployment models, Cloud-based technologies and issues around data location, service quality and reliability risks.

“The Cloud has become one of the most important and compelling IT platforms for businesses of all sizes,” said Eran Farajun, Executive Vice President, Asigra. “For those companies that use or plan to use Cloud-based applications, it is important to leverage the advantages but recognize how the platform differs from on-premise solutions. We look forward to exploring these issues during the panel.”
