Why You Should Attend

Social Media Risk

There have been major changes in media consumption and production since the inception of the Internet. At the forefront of this media evolution is social media - a participatory phenomenon used by millions of people daily. This leaves room for legal ramifications, brand tarnishing and misunderstanding when it comes to how organizations operate. Over 2.5 billion people have social media accounts. Nearly 40 percent of Fortune 500 companies are actively blogging; about 70 percent maintain active Twitter accounts, Facebook pages and have YouTube accounts. This course will explore the risk social media entails and help implement and enforce guidelines and governance for your organization.
