Pokémon Go In The Workplace: Strategies For Addressing Serious HR, Cyber Security, And Safety Concerns

Date: Recorded
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.

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.
