Everybody’s Business: Why You Can't Afford to Ignore Privacy and Information Security Issues in the Workplace


In an age of constant online connectivity, most professionals in the United States spend many of their working hours communicating electronically – juggling personal and business emails, accessing applications using mobile devices, employing global positioning systems to guide them to their destinations, engaging in social networking, blogging, tweeting, commenting, posting, sharing and beyond.  With the ubiquitous presence of technology in our personal and professional lives, how can businesses effectively manage the flow of information in and out of their organizations? 

The panel discussion will address key legal and business concerns related to the use of online technologies in the workplace.  We will explore how corporate information management intersects with employee privacy in the context of an explosion of borderless data, some of which is being created using social media with very little formal regulation.  Learn what to consider when monitoring, collecting, storing and producing electronic information, and what both employers and employees should know about protecting the security of personal and business data. 

Our panel discussion moderator will be Jessica Catlow, an associate in the Employment, Labor & Benefits section at Mintz Levin where she specializes in executive compensation and employment law. 

Our speakers this month will be Kate Paslin and Melinda McLellan. 

Kate Paslin is currently an Associate General Counsel in Access Data’s London office, which she joined following its merger with Summation Litigation Technologies.  A former litigator in California and Texas, Kate supplements her internal role with frequent writing and presentations on the impact of electronic information on discovery, disclosure and audit practices.  Kate received her J.D. from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law and a B.A. from the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor. Kate is also instrumental in getting the London chapter of Women in eDiscovery up and running and is a frequent resource to chapters in other US cities. 


Melinda McLellan is a Senior Associate with the Privacy and Data Security practice group in the New York office of Hunton & Williams LLP.  Melinda has extensive experience advising on a broad range of privacy and information security risks and compliance issues, with a particular focus on emerging online technologies.  She has written and presented on employee privacy law issues and has counseled clients on the development of information security policies and records management programs.  Melinda received her J.D. from Harvard Law School where she was Executive Editor of the Harvard International Law Journal and her B.A. from Rice University.
