Don't Be Afraid of Social Media: Addressing Risk While Leveraging New Social Platforms

The need for Social Media governance is evident in even the most tightly regulated or highly litigated companies. Social media allows organizations to engage their clients, partners and employees as they never have before. However, organizations are realizing that it is far more difficult to monitor and govern interactive content than static information. Most solutions cannot understand the meaning in interactive content—which is required for companies to derive value and ultimately manage risk. Social media is an opportunity—not a threat—to a company's bottom line and success.

Learn why it is now imperative to establish a comprehensive strategy that includes your ability to:

  • Extend existing compliance, supervision and surveillance practices to interactive content
  • Capture and control social media in the cloud
  • Perform conceptual search and policy-based monitoring of all aggregated social information —inside and outside your firewall
  • Preserve and collect social media and other interactive content for litigation or other legal proceedings
  • Determine the degree to which a social media interaction contains positive, negative or neutral sentiment
