The material presented is constantly updated, to keep pace with the rapidly changing social media landscape. The presentation is highly interactive, and includes demonstrations of social media as well as real-world scenarios to guide the discussions.

Employers that permit employees to use personal mobile devices (i.e., iPhones, iPads, Android smartphones, personal laptops, etc.) to create and/or access work-related data cannot rely upon existing electronic communication and conduct policies to provide adequate protection against the significant risks created by the blending of personal and work activities. The Bring Your Own Device (“BYOD”) trend is forcing employers to re-evaluate everything from compliance with data security laws, and trade secret protection, to wage and hour issues. In addition, dual use devices create significant challenges to existing workplace conduct policies. Given the ever-increasing number of dual use devices already being used in many workplaces, employers have no choice but to develop a comprehensive plan for addressing these new challenges.
Schwartz Hannum PC has developed an interactive, two-hour program focusing on identifying and addressing the risks associated with the BYOD revolution in the workplace.
