Lee Featured as "Legal Expert"

April 26, 2011

Charlotte Corporate Member Marcus Lee was the featured "legal expert" in TechRepublic’s April 25 IT Leadership article entitled, “The ‘fine print’ of cloud computing”.  The article is about legal implications of cloud computing, a term for anything involving the delivery of hosting services over the Internet.

The article specifically addresses data security and ownership, protecting self, protecting the company, and a “green men from Mars” clause.  Lee notes: “Even if you have a great contract with the cloud provider with all the right protections, it is still very important for the company to do a thorough due diligence on the cloud provider to be sure it is adequately secured and has appropriate backup capabilities."
