Social Media – Has Your Organization Assessed the Risks?
Social media is quickly becoming the new way people receive information and stay up-to-date with latest trends and events – such as; advertisements, endorsements, recommendations, gossip, and yes, even ‘news’. Whether it is through Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, on-line blogs, or many of the other emerging tools - all of these social media forums offer great potential for connecting with friends, peers, and customers. Many use these forums as a way to voice their opinions, rally support, or simply to make a statement.
One of the biggest impacts of the social media evolution is that instead of the conversations being between only a few individuals, the conversations are now broadcast to the masses at lightning speed. Just imagine if Justin Bieber, with over 34 million Twitter followers, posts a negative review about your product or company! How would this affect your organization? Does your organization have a means of monitoring and responding to these conversations?
This session will explore social media risks, myths, and leading practices for risk mitigation. We will provide some examples of social media mistakes, discuss questions internal auditors should be asking of their organization, and provide some examples of how social media can be used as a tool to support audit or investigation work.
