Pepper Hamilton LLP attorneys Robert Ludolph and Ryan Bowers will present a seminar on “Are Your Secrets Safe? BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) and Beyond” on Thursday, May 15, 2014 at the Skyline Club in Southfield, MI.
Our smartphones and tablets now come with us everywhere we go, and like it or not, this often includes work. The convenience of carrying and using just one device has resulted in many using their personal devices for work-related tasks. As a result, an employer’s risk of losing confidential information and confronting data breaches of customer information has increased at alarming rates. Since technology often outdistances corporate efforts to manage these tools, employees and employers often have conflicting views on the rights and responsibilities to information and privacy. Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies raise a host of issues involving trade secrets, data protection and liability for both the user and the corporation.
Mr. Ludolph and Mr. Bowers will discuss these important issues, including the employee’s expectation of privacy, protection of corporate information and compliance issues for regulated organizations.
