Lane Powell Shareholder Mike Reilly recently authored a Seattle Business magazine article regarding “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) to work policies that was featured in a February 4 FierceMobileIT article titled “Five Tips for Reducing BYOD’s Legal Risks.” The article discussed tips on how to manage the legal risk of BYOD policies including the consideration of employee privacy rights, reducing the risk of losing confidential data and defining what happens when an employee leaves the company.
“Employees are protected from the unauthorized access of their dual devices, regardless of whether they happen to be connected to their employer’s network,” Reilly explained. He advised companies to avoid accessing an employee’s personal email or personal cloud storage accounts.
