Employee competition - challenging the myths
James Froud, Associate, Bird & Bird 

Employees intent on illegitimate competition often believe they can get away with it.  This is often due to myths and misconceptions.  We examine the common myths that lead employees to give their game away and explore some of the options available to employers in such circumstances.
16.55 - 17.25
Whose information is it anyway?
Warren Wayne, Partner, Bird & Bird

In the new world of smartphones, social media, BYOD and the ever present 'cloud', the line between business and personal information seems to become less clear with each new innovation.  We explore the boundaries defining business information, what can and can't be done with it, and how you can protect it.
