Social Media Governance and Risk management Software Solution

In today’s world of social media, big data and mobility, global organizations are realizing the power and pervasiveness of online dialogues. There is a persistent focus on using social media and big data constructively as a vehicle to communicate with internal and external stakeholders. Organizations are increasingly using social media tools and big data platforms to build brands and communities which can engage customers in regular feedback dialogues, and also to create inclusive platforms to reach out to their employees.

These tools and platforms are quickly manifesting into a new marketing and engagement channel. The rapid evolution of information into data and its viral nature is persuading organizations to put in place a  GRC framework in place to manage the social media risks arising out of violations of rules related to data privacy, data security, information confidentiality and others. Further, as industry regulators such as SEC, FINRA and HIPAA publish guidelines and directives on social media engagements, it is becoming imperative for organizations to integrate the social media risk and control management into their ERM strategy.
