Lily Chinn, co-chair of Katten's Electronic Discovery and Information Governance practice, was interviewed by The Cybersecurity Law Report for a question-and-answer article on steps companies can take to reduce risk and develop policies regarding employee privacy and social media. Lily highlights the myriad of ways social media can be useful for fact finding in an internal investigation. She notes that in addition to the Stored Communications Act, legal counsel needs to be aware of the state requirements regarding privacy and social network in their respective states to ensure compliance. Lily stresses the importance of transparent policies that balance the company's ethos and the specific workforce risks regarding company-owned equipment, networks and personal devices. She states, "A policy that is very draconian can alienate a work force." ("Avoiding Privacy Pitfalls While Using Social Media for Internal Investigations," December 9, 2015)
