Does Your Organization Have a Strong BYOD Policy? These Cases Show Why It Should: eDiscovery Case Law

Please note: If you follow my blog, you may have received an email yesterday for a post about the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) starting enforcement today where the link was not working.  Evidently, WordPress encountered a glitch and sent out the notification email prematurely.  That post is now live and you can read it here.

As part of the Educational partnership between Ipro and eDiscovery Today that was announced recently, I’m excited to say that I will be writing a new weekly blog post for Ipro’s blog, to supplement the excellent educational content that Jim Gill and the Ipro team regularly provide!  Just like I do on eDiscovery Today, I will write educational posts about a variety of topics related to eDiscovery, cybersecurity and data privacy.

Today’s weekly blog post for Ipro’s blog is about three recent cases where failure to preserve mobile device data led to sanctions requests by requesting parties.  One of the more common trends these days in eDiscovery case law relates to cases related to mobile device data and the failure to preserve that data.  Many organizations today support a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) approach to employees and their mobile devices; however, many of them don’t have an effective policy or plan for addressing mobile device data when litigation hits.


So, what can we learn from three cases related to BYOD devices?  You can find out on Ipro’s blog here.  😉  Don’t worry, it’s just one extra click!  And, of course, I’ll still be continuing to write plenty of posts on eDiscovery Today as well!

So, what do you think?  Does your organization have a strong BYOD policy?  These cases show you why it should.   Please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
