Social Media: Risks and Dangers

Does your firm allow its employees to contact clients through Facebook? Are your employees doing it anyway? Social media can be a powerful tool for your business by allowing you to communicate directly with your clients in real time, but it can also expose you to new and sometimes unpredictable exposure risks. And even if your firm is not using social media, there’s a good chance your employees are. This seminar will introduce you to the risks associated with popular platforms like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and personal and professional blogs, while offering helpful insight into creating a company policy that will direct how social media can and should be used within your business.
