A Dual-Use Dilemma: Discovery of Personal Data Sources
Many companies have, with the blessing of IT, moved away a traditional IT-supported computer environment to a more user-friendly “bring your own device” approach. However, the policies offer unique challenges to employers as well as a myriad of legal issues related to not only possession and control of the devices in litigation, but the dichotomy between corporate security and the employee's personal privacy as the company's trade secret information sits alongside the employee's social media postings, tweets and text messages. This session will discuss the cutting-edge issues surrounding dual-use device policies and how best to support consumer technology while ensuring adequate controls on sensitive corporate data.
