Partner Robert Milligan will be speaking at the 2011 ITechLaw World Technology Law Conference & Annual Meeting, to be held May 12-13 in San Francisco.

Robert will present "Managing and Protecting Information (Including Trade Secrets) in the Cloud." The presentation will cover the following topic area:

The explosion of cloud computing has provided both large and small companies with many technological benefits. But with those well-recognized benefits, there are incumbent risks to valuable company data, including prized trade secrets. Companies utilizing cloud computing must employ effective measures to legally protect and secure their intellectual property. Cloud computing arrangements require carefully drafted agreements and policies to accomplish the same. Sensible executives will seek advice from competent counsel to ensure that the cost savings in cloud computing are not outweighed by the potential legal and business risks.
