Thursday, Feb. 28, 8-9 a.m. (reception at 7:30 a.m.)

This month’s topic is the increasing prevalence of BYOD – Bring Your Own Device. Employees have all kinds of smartphones, iPads, Kindle Fires and other tablets, and they all want to bring them to work and use them on the corporate network. How do you manage this? There are risks – the security of sensitive information you don’t want getting out though all these different devices, each of which has its own security system. Learn how to balance security and flexibility in this informative event. The scheduled panelists are John Bissa, Royal Oak Practice Director, C/D/H; and Kathy Ossian, a principal at the Miller Canfield law firm.
