Managing social media risk in 2013....

It’s essential to grasp how social media is fast evolving and the emerging semantic web opportunities. As social media becomes more connected and gains further momentum so too do the challenges in governance and control. Too many internal policies have been reactively formulated and are no longer comprehensive in their protection of the organisation. The web is fast becoming more connected, ‘the semantic web’ is opening up new radical possibilities for social media application which in turn presents new risks to organisations. This forum has been designed to gather pioneers in social media and those responsible for governance and risk management to share best practice and provide future perspectives on how to align strategies to the changing social media landscape.

Information security professionals, risk managers, internal and IT auditors, heads of compliance and marketers and data privacy specialists are all looking to identify the key future opportunities and risks of social media use.

Risks such as breach of privacy, fear of legal action, developing a negative reputation and lack of control have given way to avoidance of social media application, it’s now essential to tackle these as we move into a more connected age.
