Mobile Data and BYOD: Mitigating eDiscovery and Data Breach Risks
Along with the ever-increasing technological trends and advancements, specifically the proliferation of high-end mobile devices that house a tremendous volume of information, is the continuous growth of the mobile-enabled workforce. These developments offer vast opportunities for companies and organizations all over the world. Enabling employees to utilize and maximize the benefits of mobile devices can improve productivity, but requires a strong bring-your-own-device (BYOD) program.
With any BYOD program comes significant managerial, security and compliance risks for enterprises, as mobile devices become a target for hackers and perhaps a weakness surrounding IP theft and corporate espionage. In order to minimize possible future risks, it is imperative for companies to establish clear and pragmatic policies and adopt new managerial approaches to information governance and security.
In a two-hour LIVE Webcast, a panel of thought leaders, professionals and regulators assembled by The Knowledge Group will offer the audience an in-depth analysis of the fundamentals, as well as recent developments, in BYOD programs and mobile forensics. Speakers will also provide the audience with the best practices and practicalities on how to mitigate potential e-Discovery disaster risks in managing a BYOD program and mobile data.
Key topics include:
- Bring Your Own Device – A Legal Primer
- Privacy Challenges of BYOD Program
- Legal and Technical Challenges in Mobile Data and BYOD
- Implementation Issues in BYOD Policies
- Common Risks and Pitfalls
- eDiscovery Issues in Mobile Data and BYOD
