How to handle data protection in a consulting agreement?
I am a business owner looking to hire a consultant to provide services to my organization. As part of the consulting agreement, I need to ensure that any sensitive or confidential data used by the consultant is handled in a secure manner. I want to understand what steps need to be taken to ensure that data protection is addressed in the consulting agreement.

A business that wishes to protect its sensitive or confidential data has several options. Numerous types of agreements or contracts (or clauses or provisions) can help a business protect its data, including those that focus on confidentiality and/or non-disclosure, privacy, or publicity.
For a business that is contemplating hiring a consultant who will have access to sensitive or confidential data, the first step is typically to have the consultant sign an agreement protecting that data before granting the consultant access to it.
A knowledgeable attorney can assist with review, negotiating, or writing agreements that protect a business' sensitive or confidential data. Consult with a North Carolina attorney who can help you tailor the agreement to comply with North Carolina law and meet your specific legal needs.
I am a small business owner who is looking to hire a consultant to help with my business strategy. I am interested in drafting my own consulting agreement, but am unsure of the legal requirements and implications of doing so. I want to make sure I am following all of the necessary legal guidelines to protect both myself and the consultant.

A small business that wishes to draft an agreement for hiring a consultant should consider various legal requirements and implications. For just a few examples:
1. An agreement is not a valid and enforceable "contract" unless it contains certain essential elements.
2. Issues like ambiguity, contradiction, and vagueness in an agreement can be (and sometimes must be) interpreted against the drafting party.
3. Drafting an agreement for a person who will be providing individual services is a factor that could be used to interpret the relationship as "employment" when it was not intended to be.
Since consultants are usually experts of some sort, they often make their living by providing their consulting services to numerous clients. Therefore, most consultants have their own consulting agreements to present to their prospective clients.
A knowledgeable North Carolina attorney can assist with drafting, reviewing, or negotiating a consulting agreement. Even if you decide to handle a consulting agreement on your own, a legal consultation can provide guidance to help you get things started on the right foot.
