Advice on crafting social media policy

Posted On: May. 8, 2011 12:00 AM CST

Social media tools present risk managers with an array of high-stakes challenges and questions around the issues of worker privacy, free speech, employee monitoring, hiring/screening, reputational risk, libel and other potentially damaging exposures.

An upcoming Business Insurance webcast will explore how well companies are addressing these complex issues and offer cutting-edge advice on the best practices for avoiding problems.

Topics to be discussed include how to structure a corporate social media policy, how to react to violations of company policy and other ways to mitigate social media risk.

Presenting will be Alan E. Brill, senior managing director for technology services at Kroll Ontrack Inc., and Melinda S. Riechert, partner at Morgan Lewis & Bockius L.L.P. The webcast will be moderated by Business Insurance Senior Editor Judy Greenwald.

The webcast will be held May 25 and will be available on an archived basis after that. The cost to attend is $49.
