The undisciplined use of workplace technology is one of the key security threats facing Canadian employers. On the one hand, employers want employees to have access to company information remotely and whenever necessary, including outside regular business hours. However, with this flexibility comes increased risk of misuse or inappropriate disclosure of company information.

To help your workplace identify risk and implement measures to protect confidential information at all stages of the employment relationship, participate in this webinar and learn:

• How to set expectations in the hiring process

• Best practices for using confidentiality, non-competition and non-solicitation clauses

• The importance of technology use policies, including social media

• Best practices for dealing with employee-owned devices

• What to do if a departing employee takes company information
