24/7 Clash of Personal and Professional Lives Online: How Technology is Blurring the Balance of Legal and Policy Norms
In today's 24/7 interconnected world, more of us are going online in both our professional and personal capacities.

This panel explores how this blurring of personal and professional is affecting legal and policy norms in areas such as employer-employee relations, client management, reputation management and prevention loss programs. It will address issues arising out of social networking and geolocation services to business and personal lives, data mining threats and security concerns.
