Privacy in the Cloud – Market Research Firms Have Much to Consider
Complimentary Member Webinar
Thursday, May 14
2-3 PM ET
Complimentary for CASRO Members
$95 - Non Members
Lured by the promise of lower costs and higher degrees of flexibility and scalability than "traditional” computing solutions, some market research firms have moved or are considering moving to the cloud. While there are plenty of benefits, there are corresponding risks -- including data privacy, data security, and accountability. This webinar provides expert, industry-specific advice that will speak to the concepts of cloud computing, data privacy in the cloud and the potential benefits and risks for market research.
Among the topics addressed:
- The concept of cloud computing (popular service and deployment models)
- The benefits and corresponding risks
- Data privacy & data security (what are the respective responsibilities of the Market Research agency and Cloud provider?)
- Compliance issues (for small, mid-sized and larger firms)
- How to execute proper due diligence (knowing what questions to ask)
- The contracts and contract provisions you need in place
Time will be allocated for Q&A.
This is important information for chief executives, heads of IT, compliance and privacy officers, and legal counsel.
