Who will Benefit
This program will benefit attorneys and other compliance professionals in organizations where employees regularly use mobile electronic devices. This would include representatives from the HR department and the IT department as well as policy committee members and senior management. Given the degree to which BYOD-related issues and programs touch on a wide variety of divisions within an organization, this program would benefit almost anyone with responsibility in this area, whether their organization has a BYOD program or is in need of one. Realistically, ALL organizations - public, private, profit or non-profit, large or small - will confront BYOD in the very near future. It also would be useful to individuals who want to learn more about the repercussions of their own use of personal devices for work purposes.
This webinar will provide valuable assistance to all personnel.
