The Topic:
Today’s workplace is inundated with technology: computers, cell phones, the Internet. Employees who access and use this technology in the workplace (and let’s face it – they almost all do) expose employers to potentially unlimited liability for invasion of privacy, sexual harassment, defamation and even theft of trade secrets. In this full-day seminar, join an elite team of attorneys and computer forensics professionals, as they show employers like you how to identify risks posed by technology, and take the necessary safeguards to minimize loss and liability.
