Webinar: Mobile Device Risks, Records & Compliance Rules: Managing Your BYOD & COPE Policies & Procedures
Tuesday, April 02, 2019, 03:00pm - 04:30pm


Financial institution employees and executives regularly use iPhones, tablets, and other mobile devices for business and personal communications. Some use personal, unsecured smartphones to conduct business; others use employer-owned phones to hold private, nonbusiness conversations. Either way, mobile device use increases your financial institution’s legal, regulatory, security, and productivity risks.

To help manage potentially costly risks, best practices dictate development of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and Company-Owned Personally Enabled (COPE) policies and procedures, supported by employee education and technology. This session will review mobile risks facing financial institutions, including how best-practices-based policies and procedures can reduce the likelihood of online disasters, increase legal compliance, and enhance communication. Don’t let smartphone slip-ups and mobile missteps blemish your institution’s reputation, damage accountholder relationships, or sink employees’ careers. Join us to learn how to minimize mobile device risks, manage authorized use, and maximize legal and organizational compliance.
