The Board and the Cloud

In Vince Polley’s latest issue of MIRLN, he links to an article regarding the legal obligations of the Board when the company uses the cloud.

What is the Board’s duty to take reasonable care to protect the company’s assets, like information put in the cloud? Can the Board fulfill this duty without knowing which officer is responsible for managing all aspects of information?

Vince and I have a long history – both hired by Schlumberger out of DC law firms by the same guy in the same year and both independently coming to Knowledge Management for Lawyers, from an inhouse perspective. MIRLN is a must-read collection of information-related stuff, presented in a very usable form.
