BUSINESS INTEGRITY AND PERSONAL PRIVACY AND THE ELECTRONIC WORLD –The potential losses that could be caused through cyber infiltration. –Privacy rights of individuals in the workplace as they relate to electronic devices. Computer systems, electronic data, email and cloud storage all provide significantly greater efficiencies for businesses. But there is a potential cost to these benefits and that is the possibility that business systems, including customer data, can be wrongfully infiltrated and important information compromised. Business entities must take affirmative steps to protect their systems from internal data theft or manipulation as well as external threats. The assumption must be that there will be a breach; to believe otherwise would be to ignore the daily reports of such events at even the largest international corporations. The first part of this presentation provides an overview of significant breaches, how they occurred and the harm they caused. It will also provide basic guidelines about how businesses can and should: ○ Adopt comprehensive policies concerning access to network systems. These should be published throughout the company and adhered to in order to minimize these significant risks; and ○ Obtain legal advice concerning the best ways to warn employees about the repercussions of unauthorized disclosure and use of proprietary information. The second part of this presentation relates to the privacy concerns of employees in this age of BYOD (Bring Your Own Devices). The discussion will focus on whether the use of personal electronic devices, including cell phones and computers, exposes individuals to a loss of privacy in the event of developments that will require outside inquiries. This presentation will discuss the business and legal implications of these issues.
