Social Media - protecting your business across the employee lifecycle
Social media platforms, such as LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook are fantastic tools for promoting and building a company’s brand, as well as gathering intelligence on markets, customer opinion and on possible recruits.
But, whilst social media offers fantastic business opportunities, it’s very easy for companies to fall foul of data protection and employment laws when vetting potential recruits.
Employers also need to ensure that social media is used appropriately by employees and, importantly, to successfully protect their digital assets from being shared or stolen online.
