Bring Your Own Device ("BYOD") and Social Media: Risks, Policies

(Webinar length:  1 hr 26m)


The legal means through which people work and interact are changing.  Increasingly, employees are using their own mobile devices (tablets and smartphones) and their own online services (Gmail and LinkedIn) to perform work for their employers under a program known as bring-your-own-device (BYOD).  In addition, people are talking, negotiating and storing records in the “cloud,” which includes social media like Facebook, Twitter and Pintrest and archive services like Skydrive and Google Drive.

These changes raise vexing risks and issues for employers and professionals.  Who owns, controls and can gain access to records on personal devices or in social networks?  What policies do employers need to govern the security of data and the control of accounts?  How should officials conduct investigations – such as HR investigations, government audits or police investigations -- relative to data in the cloud or on mobile devices?  What must employers do to comply with new laws governing employee privacy in social media?

This webinar teaches practical tips, tools and lessons re: BYOD.  It offers a template for developing BYOD policy within your organization.  It explains the latest trends in law and court cases.  It teaches methods for preserving records, respecting privacy and getting the legal terms you want as you form contracts by way of these new media.  This webinar updates managers and professionals with essential new skills for coping with the latest technology.
