Companies are allowing more employees to use their own smartphones, digital tablets and other mobile devices at work. The trend has potential benefits, including improved productivity, morale and cost savings.
However, employers face inherent security and privacy risks with this practice. Sensitive company information could inadvertently wind up on the cloud because of employees’ actions. Business and personal materials could get mixed and the personal devices can get lost or stolen.
In addition, employers have to contend with higher workplace security costs, greater difficulty enforcing legal and regulatory compliance issues and the emergence of complex privacy issues.
This free one-hour webinar, sponsored by Zurich, will explain the expanding variety of risks with the use of personal mobile devices in the workplace and how risk managers can monitor a company’s exposures and effectively minimize the risks.
Speakers will include:
Philip L. Gordon, a shareholder in the Denver, Colo., office of Littler Mendelson P.C. and chairman of the firm’s privacy and data protection practice group. Mr. Gordon has written published articles on privacy and data protection issues.
Phil Mayes is a Senior Vice President in the Global Technology and Privacy Practice of Lockton Cos. in London. Before joining Lockton, Phil was the head of technology professional indemnity for Zurich Global Corporate in London, creating the division in December 2006. Prior to Zurich, Phil spent three years at CNA Insurance as a technology underwriting manager, responsible for the U.K., Europe, and Australia. From 1996 to 2001, Phil worked for St. Paul International, where he established a technology errors and omission underwriting division for the Benelux countries, operating from Amsterdam.
Peter S. Vogel, a partner at Gardere Wynne Sewell L.P. in Dallas. Before practicing law, Mr. Vogel, who holds a master’s degree in computer science, worked as a systems programmer and taught college graduate courses in information systems.
