Bring Your Own Device To The Workplace: Minimizing Legal Risks Of BYOD Programs

Webinar: ID# 1015311
Recorded CD or On-Demand
About This Course:
The rapid adoption of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) programs in the workplace creates a number of legal risks for employers. One of the most significant legal threats is the increased potential for employee mishandling or theft of a company’s proprietary and confidential data and trade secrets.

Employers and in-house counsel must develop and implement well-crafted BYOD policies and procedures that 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 the latest trends in BYOD - including 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, including:
  • Latest trends in BYOD in the workplace
  • Data security and protection risks of BYOD
  • Risk management best practices for BYOD

    • Evaluating whether to allow BYOD
    • Effective BYOD policies and practices
    • Using mobile device management (MDM) solutions to reduce risk

The panel will review these and other key questions:
  • What are a BYOD employer’s rights with regard to employee personal devices when an employee leaves the company?
  • What issues or concerns should an effective BYOD policy address?
  • How is mobile device management (MDM) being used to increase security in workplaces allowing BYOD?
