Looking forward to speaking at Hofstra Law’s Labor & Employment Law Journal’s “Spring 2016 Symposium: Technology in the Workplace.” I am joining a very impressive panel on Cyber Security and Electronic Employment Records. I will be talking about the need for employment lawyers to be active participants in cybersecurity-related discussions — and to share some thoughts on how to do so.
The program is Friday, April, 15 2016 | 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Details follow.

The growing use of technology in legal practice coupled with the pervasiveness of social media poses new challenges and raises new concerns in the workplace. This conference will examine issues such as the use of personal devices for professional purposes; balancing the rights of employees with the reputation of the firm or company; protecting clients’ interests while complying with employees’ rights; using social media as a tool when hiring, firing or disciplining employees; and ensuring the security and integrity of electronic employee records.
