Association TRENDS Webinar: "BYOD for 501(c)s: Pros and Perils of 'Bring Your Own Device'"

This event has already occurred.

Are you thinking about letting volunteers and employees use their own mobile devices to share and access your organization’s information?

Careful: The money you save may be nothing compared to potential legal costs. Even well-intentioned use of personal devices can trigger everything from data and privacy breaches to harassment and overtime pay disputes, expense reimbursement, and even intellectual property lawsuits.

Before you join other nonprofits by implementing “Bring Your Own Device,” make sure you have the policy, procedures and safeguards in place to prevent disasters.

Moderated by Jeffrey Tenenbaum, chair of Venable's Nonprofit Organizations practice, this webinar will explain how to design BYOD policies and safeguards specifically for your own nonprofit.

Cut the costs and risks of BYOD guesswork. Before you land in hot water, this webinar helps you address BYOD throughout your entire organization: from potential cost savings to potential risks. From HR issues to legal liability you’ll learn trouble-shooting tactics for maximizing BYOD pros and minimizing the perils.

Learn how to make BYOD work best for your nonprofit, including how to:

  • Write a BYOD policy tailored to your organization’s specific needs
  • Assess how to head off issues involving employee privacy
  • Implement the right safeguards to secure sensitive information
  • Resolve intellectual property issues tangled up with BYOD
  • Avoid disputes over expense reimbursement and overtime pay

Remember, BYOD may be increasingly popular with nonprofits, but it’s also increasing the odds of disastrous mistakes.
