The days of an employer providing its employees with the personal devices of their choice are long gone. Now, advanced devices available like the iPhone and Android, employees themselves are bringing their own cutting-edge products into the workplace. This development has sparked the technologically revolutionary bring your own device movement (BYOD). While BYOD offers many benefits — cost-savings, greater efficiency and improved employee morale — it also has its pitfalls.
In this webinar Jason Habinsky and Jason Juceam summarize the legal and practical issues an employer must consider in order to safely and effectively maintain a BYOD program, including minimizing risk with a well-drafted BYOD policy. In addition, this presentation highlights the latest tech trends currently impacting employers, how organizations can use technology to protect themselves, and the different BYOD trends employees are adopting today.
