About this event

The British Chamber of Commerce for Luxembourg is pleased to invite you to a members only Afterwork Conference & Cocktail: "BYOD - Bring Your Own Device" with guest speakers Gilles Dall'Agnol & Catherine Di Lorenzo of Allen & Overy on Thursday 4 July at 17:30 at Allen & Overy, 33 Avenue J.F Kennedy

"Bring your own device" is a phenomenon currently in vogue. It relates to the practice by which employers authorise their employees to use their own IT devices (e.g. Smartphones, computers) in the context of professional business activities. "Bring your own device" triggers numerous and diverse reactions: pragmatists see it as an element of retention for young managers or a cost reduction measure; more critical voices consider it as a gadget for CEOs, an encroachment on privacy and more.

In any case, beyond such discussions, this matter raises a certain number of legal challenges, especially in the fields of labour law and data protection. The speakers will present a structured review of these challenges and provide practical answers.

As to labour law aspects, the conference will deal in particular with topics such as: Who will bear the costs of acquisition and maintenance of the device? What usage rules should apply? How can they be implemented? What sanctions can be ordered in cases of violation of these rules? Regarding data protection, the main focus will be on IT security and the employer's ability to access professional data. This topic is closely linked to the monitoring of employees at the workplace, which is why the rights and obligations of employers in this field will also be addressed.

The evening will begin with registration at 17:30. The presentations will begin at 18:00, followed by a Q & A session with the audience. From 19:30 there will be drinks and canapés kindly offered by Allen & Overy Luxembourg and the opportunity to network. This event is free of charge, however registration is required. Allen & Overy client parking will be avalaible (rue Richard de Coudenhove-Kalergi). Please RSVP by 26 June 2013.
