Recording of a 90-minute CLE webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will provide guidance to business and technology counsel for drafting and negotiating service level agreements (SLAs) between customers and software and cloud vendors that address how new technology systems will be implemented, the level of customer support to be provided, and adequate data security measures.

- Key provisions
- Measuring tools
- Common issues and remedies
- Special considerations for cloud SLAs
The panel will review these and other key questions:
