Bring Your Own Device – A practical solution or a risk too far?

8 December

Asia Pacific


As the pandemic hit, many companies were able to implement business continuity plans to facilitate remote working as countries enforced long lasting work from home regimes. However, other businesses were wholly unprepared, and were forced to adapt quickly to the fast evolving situation, and found themselves scrambling to find quick technology solutions to be able to continue to operate. Many resorted to the use of BYOD without having thought through the additional risks this brings or mitigated the risks to the business and the impact on their employees.

The presentation and panel discussion will cover the various cyber security, data protection, employment and other legal risks associated with the use of BYOD and remote working, and the significant challenges in balancing the need to implement additional security when using BYOD with a need to respect employee privacy.

Our speakers have a wealth of combined experience in navigating the risks and the practical issues that arise, so please join Gerallt Owen – Managing Director, Kroll Cyber Singapore, Bryan Tan – Partner, Pinsent Singapore, and Jenny Zhuang – Of Counsel at Dentons Hong Kong for what we are sure will be a fascinating conversation.
