Setting Technology Policies That Make Sense in a Web 2.0 World Roundtable 09.09.2008 12:00am Sponsored by: Williams Mullen · Keller Benefit Services · Payroll Network

About the Session
Blogs, podcasts, Basecamp, wikis, instant messaging, SharePoint, Facebook, and ning, oh my! Does this sound like Greek to you? It doesn’t to many of your staff members, particularly those of the Millennial” generation. Your organization needs sound, reasonable policies on use of technology in the office, particularly for all the emerging social networking options. But regulating the use of technology in the workplace doesn’t have to be a Big Brother tactic – it’s just smart business. Elizabeth Engel, CAE, Senior Consultant, Beaconfire Consulting, will facilitate a discussion on how to balance the opportunities presented by new technologies while appropriately controlling risk.

We hope you will join your colleagues for an information-packed session that will explore the latest developments in Web 2.0 technologies, how your organization can benefit from them, and what you need to be aware of in developing policies around their use.
