Once considered “buzzwords” in the technology industry, these terms are becoming commonplace in today’s world.  Understanding new technologies and how they can and should impact the operation of your nonprofit organization are more important than ever.  In this program, we will address some of the hottest advances in general commercial technologies, including mobile applications, the “cloud,” information security, and electronic contracting, and will highlight the risks and importance of each from a legal perspective.  We will focus on four key areas, with a special focus on how these issues play out in the nonprofit community:

  • Contracting for the creation or development of a mobile application (“app”) - securing the necessary agreements, considering third-party content, and minimizing privacy and data-protection risks;

  • Contracting for cloud-based services - weighing the pros and cons of moving to the “cloud,” addressing key differences from license-based services, and protecting against data and privacy breaches;

  • Addressing information security on an organization-wide scale - understanding the key risks and necessary protections of doing business digitally; and

  • Understanding electronic contracting - forming and executing contracts online.
