All those involved in IT, information security and compliance need to understand the trends and industry norms.
A tough commercial environment means you need to guarantee IT and contract departments are getting the best terms available.

This highly practical three-day programme in-house programme will walk the team through the three key stages of drafting and negotiating a technology deal from understanding the technologies and their legal implications, through to putting a watertight agreement together and finally closing the deal. Providing both technical and practical skills development this workshop will present participants with the knowledge they need to deliver more equitable contracts for licensing, training needs, support and maintenance, outsourcing and escrow and development and how to reduce the confusion that often leads to litigation.
