Gardere's Peter Vogel and Cliff Risman Discuss Hotel Security Protection


Hotel Business spoke with Gardere Partner Peter S. Vogel, chair of the Internet, eCommerce and Technology Team, and Clifford J. Risman, chair of the Firm's Hospitality Industry Team, about protecting hotels against security breaches with proper security.

"It's imperative that the hotel make sure they have the right technically trained folks to run their information technology operations," said Mr. Vogel. "It seems to me that we're at a point in time where there's no substitute for good, thoughtful management."

Mr. Risman added, "Most of the lawyers drafting the language in those contracts have little or no familiarity with these issues, and they don't get properly addressed."

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
