Extract from Andrew J. Kennedy's article "Guidelines Emerge with Rise in E-Discovery of Employee Devices"
Over the last twenty years employees have become accustomed to using their own personal devices for work. This has become known as "Bring Your Own Device" or "BYOD." With BYOD comes concerns about security, privacy, and discovery obligations. In January 2018, the Sedona Conference published the paper "Commentary on BYOD: Principles and Guidance for Developing Policies and Meeting Discovery Obligations."The paper's aim is to help organizations develop BYOD policies and reduce discovery disputes.
Baseline Principles Offer Companies Guidance on BYOD At its core, the Sedona Conference established five key principles on BYOD policies. The first principle is that "organizations should consider their business needs and objectives, their legal rights and obligations of their employees when deciding whether to allow, or even require BYOD."
I wanted a certification that separates me from my peers. Upon discovering CEDS, I was convinced this was exactly the type of distinction I had been seeking. Since achieving CEDS certification, I’ve noticed immediate recognition from my organization, colleagues, and current and prospective clients.They acknowledge they are more comfortable working with a person who has taken time to seek such certification. CEDS has certainly been worth the small investment and should continue to beget returns for years and years to come.
