The Risks of BYOD and What You Can Do About Them

18 October 2012 Past Event

Virtual Corporate Counsel Forum

8–9 a.m. CDT

Corporate Counsel is offering a complimentary webinar on Oct. 18 featuring Gardere Trial Partner Peter S. Vogel.

BYOD (or bring your own device) is an unstoppable force in today's corporate environment, where recent statistics have suggested that the number of employees bringing their own devices to the workplace has reached 78 percent of the workforce. From an eDiscovery perspective, who owns the data? Is it the corporation or the individual? Does discovery include everything from the device, the contacts, text messages, call logs, geo tagging, etc.? What data can be captured for an eDiscovery collection without infringing on the privacy rights of the individual? What data can be left behind without exposing a corporation to allegations of spoliation? Companies must be proactive in managing BYO devices in the workplace environment and ensuring data is preserved and collected in a defensible manner without compromising an organization's ability to be successful in litigation while maintaining a balance to preserve employee privacy rights.

CLE will be offered for credits in New York, California and Illinois.
