Online CLE BYOD eDiscovery

Join us for this Knowledge Group Online CLE BYOD eDiscovery Webinar. The use of personal mobile devices in the workplace, commonly referred to as "Bring Your Own Device" (BYOD) has now become abundant. While there are many advantages to BYOD, mobile devices such as cellphones, tablets, e-readers and laptops poses significant and unique challenges to businesses and the legal industry. For instances where BYOD devices get put on a litigation hold, numerous issues are addressed, including the type of dispute or investigation, comingling of corporate and personal data, data protection and encryption, and the type of data being sought. To mitigate the potential risks of e-Discovery complications, it is important that an organization implement an effective mobile device policy.

In this Webcast, a panel of key thought leaders and professionals assembled by The Knowledge Group will help the audience understand the fundamentals and the most important aspects of BYOD in e-Discovery.
