Thursday, May 10, 2012 at 1:30 pm ET
Duration: 90 minutes
Speakers: Boris Segalis, Esq.
In the not too recent past, a company-issued BlackBerry® was the rage. But today, many employers have a found a new way to save by allowing employees to connect their personal mobile devices to company emails, calendars, and other systems. No longer tied to their employers' often outdated technology, employees are delighted to take advantage of this offer and often have their monthly bill subsidized. Employers, however, must realize that, while financially lucrative, "Bring Your Own Device" (BYOD) puts confidential company data on personal devices and creates many data protection issues that employers must address, both from the viewpoint of the employer and the employee. This webinar, conducted by Boris Segalis, a partner at the New York City office of the information technology-focused law firm InfoLawGroup LLP, will explain the legal risks that businesses face in implementing BYOD and suggest practical ways to address these risks.
