Pokémon Go In The Workplace: Strategies For Addressing Serious HR, Cyber Security, And Safety Concerns
|Date / Time:
The Pokemon Go phenomenon has taken the nation by storm, and the fantasy game is presenting real-world problems for employers across the country.
The gist: at physical locations called “PokéStops,” Pokémon Go players are tasked with finding and catching the elusive Pokémon characters. If a Pokémon is close by, the user’s smart phone vibrates and displays the virtual creature, which can be caught by tapping the screen and throwing a Poké Ball at it. PokéStops can be found almost anywhere, monuments, restaurants, and yes, in your office, your warehouse, or other facility.
Niantic, the maker of the widely popular app, which has amassed over 50 million downloads, recently reported it had resolved a software issue that previously had given Pokémon Go virtually unlimited access to the user’s private smartphone data. This is particularly concerning where employees may be using company-owned business only (COBO) or bring your own device to work (BYOD) smart phones to download and play the game.
What’s more, the distraction caused by this app could present serious safety risks for your employees.
If your employees are crazed about collecting Pokémon, you can’t afford to miss our upcoming webinar that will explore HR, safety, and cybersecurity concerns this interactive phenomenon raises for workplaces across the country.
Join us for an engaging webinar, featuring live Q&A. Daniel C. Nelson, C|EH, John “J.P.” Hasman, and Lucas Amodio, C|EH, of Armstrong Teasdale, will address the unique risks Pokémon Go and similar apps present and will provide practical strategies for protecting your employees and the integrity of your corporate data.

|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.
