Social media – can you think of an organization that doesn't use it? While the benefits of using various platforms are widely recognised, more than ever the legal and commercial risks of using social media can be critical ones. Managing those risks can depend on the industry that you are in and the use you want to make of it. We know that clients around the world are interested in understanding collective experiences of risk and compliance when using social media. Collective experience is a powerful tool in addressing the compliance conundrum and making sense of how to prioritise effort and focus.
