From Smartphones to iPads: Legal Issues When Employees Bring Their Own Devices to Work
|Date / Time:
It is quite common for employees to use their personal computers, smartphones, and tablets to send and receive work-based communications and perform other work-related tasks. In fact, the term BYOD, bring your own device, has been coined to describe this growing trend.
BYOD in the workplace can provide employers an added connection to their workforce, allowing employees to efficiently address important matters quicker than in the past. Also, allowing access to the employer's network via the employee's own personal devices may result in greater overall efficiency and productivity, fewer electronic devices to keep track of, and the ability to use the most up-to-date devices and features.
But there are drawbacks as well. Employers may have a harder time managing and protecting sensitive data when it is stored or can be easily accessed from employee-owned devices. In addition, the 24/7 access could create potential wage and hour problems if not monitored carefully.
To reduce legal and liability risks, companies need to implement a Bring Your Own Device policy that includes mobile device security policies, password policies, encryption policies, data classification policies, acceptable use policies, and more.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
