Dan Schwartz will present the Keynote Presentation, "The Rise of the Smartphone-Fueled Social-Media-Addicted Workplace Zombies" at the WorkSmart Hartford 2017: Complimentary IT, Business & Security Conference.  

There’s little doubt that smartphones and social media have revolutionized the workplace. But before workplaces can catch their breath, the technology continues to leap forward, resting for no one. Younger generations are embracing second and third-generation social media and texting apps like Snapchat in increasing numbers. But something is being lost too — personal interaction.  Why talk, when you can text your office mate next door? As a result, hackers are now taking advantage of this change in social norms with schemes that would never had succeeded a decade ago.  In this keynote address, noted Shipman & Goodwin employment law and data privacy partner Daniel Schwartz will take a look at the trends and offer practical solutions for companies to reduce their legal risks while still embracing new technologies.

WorkSmart is one of the largest complimentary Business and IT Conferences in New England. At this event, ADNET and their trusted partners share a variety of perspectives on evolving business, IT and security trends, such as IT risk management, compliance, business intelligence, business continuity and the impact of smart technology on our personal and professional lives.
