Course Description

As more employees bring their personal technology to work, (like smartphones, tablets, laptops, and even desktop PCs), businesses can take advantage of this trend and reap a number of benefits, such as shorter technology learning curves, greater productivity, lower hardware and software costs and more active and involved employees. However, there is a downside to the BYOT development, of which risks to computer systems and exposure of confidential client information are just two examples. It is imperative to manage these risks with an official BYO Tech Policy ? an important implementation which most businesses and law firms have not yet done

In this presentation by Russell Jackman, Esq. of Calmputer Consulting Services in Marin County, California, Mr. Jackman discusses employee/employer control of technology and the legal issues that come from Bringing Your Own Technology to work. He discusses the types of technology available to the modern law office to control the access to information and data and addresses strategies to create a solid plan to deal with BYOT challenges. Moreover, with the ethical duty to maintain confidentiality, it is vitally important that lawyers and law firms be aware of the risks of BYOT.
