KRAA Security’s CEO Gary Bahadur to speak on Social Media Security Legal and Technical Risks at the Social Media Legal Risk and Strategies Summit in San Francisco, October 4-6 2011   Miami, FL, October 3, 2011 — This month, Mr. Bahadur and Mr. Kubs Lalchandani will discuss the risks surrounding corporate use of Social Media at the Social Media Legal Risk and Strategies Summit. How do companies protect themselves from inappropriate Social Media usage by employees, either through malicious intent or simple mistakes? What processes should be put in place to provide structured methods for dealing with social media securely, for educating employees and for monitoring and maintaining a positive social media presence?   What new security challenges will be posed by Social Media utilization in the workplace from a legal and technical perspective?   It is incumbent upon companies large and small to develop and manage their social media presence. Those that resist or procrastinate can be beaten in 140 characters or less. How does an enterprise develop its strategy without inviting the common pitfalls, including everything from costly litigation to breaches of confidential information and regulatory requirements?   This presentation will guide attendees through real-world factual examples and legal cases involving companies that failed to install the right technical safeguards, meet regulatory requirements, and implement enterprise-specific policies, systems and procedures. By the end of this interactive, engaging presentation, attendees will have gained a dual understanding of how to properly scrutinize potential social marketing strategies from a legal and technical perspective to protect their best interests. Attendees will learn to determine whether: (1) a social media strategy is vulnerable to leaks and breaches and; (2) Internet usage will expose their companies to litigation. In addition, attendees will benefit from (and enjoy) the presenters’ collection of real-world legal decisions and case studies that illustrate the dos and don’ts of online strategies. Key takeaways for attendees include:  
  • Overview of the technical landscape of social media tools.
  • Technical protections available to help companies avoid leaks and breaches.
  • Effective action plan for handling breaches.
  • Categorized list of the most common legal pitfalls relating to social media.
  • Framework for developing the right social media policies and systems with buy-in and support from key constituents within your company or organization.
