Webcast about Risks of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device)


Since the advent of the iPhone, iPad, and Droid devices employees have demanded that they use whatever devices they like, (e.g. BYOD) which has led IT leaders to change the way they do business regarding emails and company data. Clearly BYOD has had an impact on all businesses and as a result eDiscovery, and ALM is hosting a free CLE on October 18, 2012 at 8am CDT as part of the Virtual Corporate Counsel Forum and I welcome you to attend.

The title of this ALM webcast speech is “The Risks of BYOD and What You Can Do About Them” and my co-presenter is Antoinette Duffy who is the Director of Information Management at Commvault, Canada. Here’s the description of the presentation:

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 have reached 78% of the workforce. From an eDiscovery perspective is, 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 and organizations ability to be successful in litigation while maintaining a balance to preserve employee privacy rights.

Please let me know what you think about BYOD and how it impacts your life.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
