Computing connectivity is usually equated with convenience. Plug in the USB memory device you carry in your pocket to the company network, download the business data, and off you (and the data) go. Quick. Easy. And potentially fraught with legal risks and liabilities for you, the business, and the customer or client. Interconnectivity issues will only increase over time as new technologies allow for new ways to access data. While the legal risks can be managed, they may not be entirely removed. It is a process. As the old Chinese saying goes, “If you don’t know where you are going, any road can take you there.” Which road will you take to connect with your data? This article explores some of these legal risks and potential methods to reduce the risks.
