This CLE webinar will guide employment counsel in advising clients on developing bring your own device (BYOD) policies to govern employee use of personal electronic devices in the workplace. The panel will outline best practices to protect employers’ confidential and proprietary data from employee misuse, inadvertence or carelessness.

Description

The rapid adoption of BYOD programs in the workplace has created a number of legal risks for employers, including the increased potential for employee mishandling or theft of a company’s proprietary and confidential data and trade secrets.

Employment counsel must guide clients in developing and implementing well-crafted BYOD policies and procedures that help minimize the risks associated with employees storing corporate data on personal devices. These policies must be routinely updated to keep pace with rapidly changing technological advances.

Listen as our authoritative panel of employment attorneys discusses strategies employers should undertake to ensure their BYOD policies and practices effectively protect proprietary and confidential business information. The panel will address safeguards for employers to ensure employees handle such information with care and prevent theft of information amid constantly evolving technological advances.

Outline

  1. Latest trends in BYOD in the workplace
  2. Data security and protection risks of BYOD
  3. Risk management best practices for BYOD
    1. Evaluating whether to allow BYOD
    2. Effective BYOD policies and practices
    3. Using mobile device management (MDM) solutions to reduce risk
  4. Wage and Hour issues in a BYOD world

Benefits

The panel will review these and other key issues:

  • What are an employer’s legal rights with regard to checking an employee’s personal device when the employee leaves the company?
  • What issues or concerns should an effective BYOD policy address?
  • What types of wage and hour issues do BYOD policies raise?
  • How is mobile device management (MDM) being used to increase security in workplaces allowing BYOD?
