Next week I’m on a panel for the Australian Institute of Company Directors about social media. Being that this organisation are particularly interested in governance and mitigating risk, the discussion will be centred around the fact that social media is a double edged sword.
Many clients are aware of ‘social media risk’, but are unsure of how it may affect their organisation. In anticipation of the event here are some of my top tips to minimising your risk with social media:
9. Consider engaging the services of a social media lawyer. There is an emergence of lawyers and other business professionals offering consultancy and services in the area of social media law to help businesses navigate the legal risks related to the use of social media, be it by employees (both during and after work hours), as well as risks posed by third parties.
We use and love Idea Law in Brisbane for this.
