The Mobile Workforce: BYOD, Protecting Sensitive & Confidential Information, and More - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to examine the benefits and potential pitfalls of an increasingly mobile workforce and best practices for leveraging data while maintaining security and navigating the myriad of privacy laws.

The mobile workforce isn’t going away; in fact, it’s growing. That means employees often are working from home or using their own cell phones and devices for much of their work. For most organizations, it’s now more the norm for employers to allow and even expect their workers to use their own devices. So how can employers ensure the safety and confidentiality of sensitive company information and data? With the mobile workforce, employers definitely face some challenges on this topic.

Most employers have—or know they need to have—a social media policy as well as a “bring your own device” policy (BYOD policy), especially when it comes to protecting data and trade secrets. In addition to a policy, employers need to communicate to their employees that they can and will be monitoring electronic technology usage. Without clear communication and policies, you could wind up in court facing invasion-of-privacy charges, especially if you have to discipline an employee for a leak or improper sharing of sensitive information.

In addition, employers should establish a data breach policy to protect sensitive information and data. Employees should have guidance on what to do if a breach occurs, and there should also be an explanation of how the organization will respond in case of a data breach.

Use this on-demand webinar for a deep dive into the world of BYOD and electronic monitoring to learn the ins and outs of keeping it legal while still protecting your organization’s sensitive information.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Recognize how trends and statistics in workplace mobility may impact your own organization
  • Consider the potential issues and challenges workplace mobility could present for your organization
  • Identify and implement BYOD policies and practices that protect your information while addressing employee privacy concerns
  • Spot potential threats to confidential information, trade secrets, and client relationships as a result of employees’ use of personal electronic devices for work
  • Understand liability pitfalls, including the Stored Communications Act and state social media privacy laws
  • Implement the four basic elements of an electronic use policy
  • Adopt best practices for encryption, training, and access management
  • Establish a data breach policy to protect your company
  • And much more!

Plus, you’ll get an article outlining best practices for electronic use and data breach policies!
