Negotiating Association Software Contracts:
Effective Business and Legal Strategies
Recorded on May 12, 2015

After signing a contract for computer software, you don’t want to discover that cyber security safeguards are missing or that you’ve misunderstood the service level agreement.  You especially don’t want to find that your software contract negatively affects how you handle audits or PCI compliance.

So, before you sign, you need to review the contract from a 360-degree perspective, including how it will mesh with your business and legal strategies. You need to understand the additional issues raised by contracts for Software as a Service (SaaS) and cloud computing. Plus, you need to know the best way to use your know-how to negotiate the most favorable terms and the most solid protections.

Here’s where to start.
