Course Description:
Social media has changed the world; social media has changed the way how people communicate with each other and with companies and institutions; social media forms part of the process to move towards digital communication and forces companies to invest into it.

While social media has democratized information dissemination, it has also raised the risk that the ‘bad and the ugly’ use social media in irresponsible or even malicious ways. Consequently, as business is trying to capitalize on social media, it needs to establish and take control of the conversations surrounding their company and their brands.

This is the reason why we are offering the workshop: the aim is to assist organizations to communicate tangible and relatable truth without running into risks.

This innovative half-day module introduces participants to the development and rise of social media in society, its engagement by business and its use by individuals. It will discuss the various forms and channels and explore the issues that come with all things trending and the viral.

Program Outline:

Development and Rise
Forms and Channels
Settings and Preferences
Features and Characteristics
Issues and Challenges
Part B – Roundtable Discussion Points

A discussion format and running Q & A series will be adopted to draw out perennial questions and evolving concerns. A cyber risk assessment framework is used as the lens of analysis.

Participants will better understand the context and contours of social media today and tomorrow and identify the root causes of its popularity and dangers. They are expected to develop their own responses and take preventive or remedial action.
