We have recently published a new report - Managing your risks in the cloud. This report highlights some of the benefits of adopting a cloud solution, the risks and how you can manage and reduce these risks and has some key lessons for you to implement in your business.

Our lawyers are the forefront of cloud computing and are involved in the Cloud Industry Forum’s code governance and legal boards and have co-authored best practice recommendations for cloud contracts and have expertise on data protection issues relevant to cloud.
It is difficult to ignore cloud. In the UK over 50% of organisations have formally used at least one cloud service.Of those that have yet to adopt their first cloud service, 18% expect to do so in 2012 and a further 17% intend to within three years.*
But data security and privacy remain key concerns are key**.Organisations contemplating a cloud solution should not only do their diligence but ensure that their cloud contract provides them with the protection they need. Cloud providers can stand out from the crowd by addressing this need. For more information on the cloud or any related issue, contact Frank Jennings, Head of Commercial email@example.com.
