McLellan, Sherer, and Fedeles Co-Author Journal Article on Issues Surrounding Corporate "Bring Your Own Device" Policies for International Organizations

Articles / March 31, 2015

Counsels Melinda McLellan and James Sherer joined Associate Emily Fedeles in co-authoring an article in the March 20, 2015 issue of the Richmond Journal of Law & Technology titled “Wherever You Go, There You Are (With Your Mobile Device): Privacy Risks and Legal Complexities Associated with International ‘Bring Your Own Device’ Programs.” The article addresses the use of mobile devices for both personal and professional purposes, commonly referred to as “Bring Your Own Device” or “BYOD,” and the challenges these devices present multinational organizations. Among the issues examined in the article are global BYOD practices; the tension between organizational control of mobile devices and employee privacy concerns; and existing regulatory requirements and jurisprudence concerning employee expectations of privacy and employer monitoring of devices used for professional purposes.

The article describes the steps involved in implementing a BYOD program and presents point-by-point considerations for all organizations—especially those multinational organizations with employees who regularly travel internationally, and who take their devices (and corporate data) along with them when they cross borders.

McLellan also joined Fedeles and Jonathan Swerdloff in presenting on the article in a March 25, 2015, Association of Certified E-Discovery Specialists (ACEDS) Webinar titled “Wherever You Go, There You Are (With Your Mobile Device) - Legal and Practical Implications of Implementing a Cross-border BYOD Program.”
