Program Description:

The Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) movement continues to gain in popularity and is being adopted – officially and unofficially – by employers of every type and size. There are many perceived benefits associated with a BYOD workplace but whether those benefits are actually being realized is far from settled.  Additionally, BYOD policies can impose significant legal liability for employers who have failed to address the problems before they occur. Fortunately, there are several steps that an employer can take to prevent the potential risks that are often associated with a BYOD workplace. This webinar features legal experts from around the U.S. who will address the following:

  • The potential benefits of permitting employees’ use of dual-purpose devices
  • The most significant legal risks associated with such use
  • Best practices in preventing liability in a BYOD workplace
