In 2018, the Sedona Conference released a commentary on Corporate Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) for legal professionals, involving data management, ediscovery practices, policy development and employee protection considerations. The core components of this commentary are five principles that impact considerations for a BYOD program within a corporate organization.

As corporate organizations move into situations where BYOD is a business direction, it's important for legal professionals in these organizations to consider what a BYOD program consists of, how employee and organizational goals and protections are considered, and why ediscovery plays a role in the development of a BYOD program.

In this ILTA Radio installment, a panel of legal industry professionals discusses the Sedona Conference commentary's five principles, scenarios on how legal business dynamics are structured for a BYOD program, risks and what goes in to making a program work.

Panel:
Jack Thompson (Moderator) - Sr. Manager, eDiscovery & Legal Operations, Sanofi
Kemoy Foster - eDiscovery Manager, Swiss Re
Kim-An Hernandez - Senior Counsel for Information Technology + eDiscovery + Knowledge Management, International Paper
Bonnie Kennedy - eDiscovery Manager, Delta Air Lines
