Recording of a 90-minute CLE video webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will guide business and technology counsel to review and revise representations, warranties, and indemnification clauses in software and cloud computing agreements, given increased malware threats and other security vulnerabilities. The panel will discuss key considerations when updating risk mitigation provisions and potential enforceability challenges with the clauses.
- Updating representation and warranties provisions
- Scope of reps
- Scope of warranties
- Warranties specific to malware threats
- Continuing warranties
- Updating indemnification provisions
- Statutory and common law limitations
- Key provisions
- Exculpatory clauses
- Enforcing indemnification provisions
The panel will review these and other notable issues:
- How can counsel best mitigate and allocate risk when reviewing and revising representations, warranties, and indemnification clauses in software and cloud computing agreements?
- What gaps to current software vulnerabilities indicate "anti-virus" and "anti-malware" contract provisions? How can these gaps be addressed in updated warranty provisions?
- How have the courts' varying interpretations of indemnification provisions impacted parties' ability to shift liability in IT contracts?
- What challenges do parties commonly face when seeking to make an indemnification claim?
