The importance of social media protection
Businesses are now investing thousands (sometimes millions) of pounds a year on their social media presence. If your social media content has been infringed or account stolen and then misused, the damage to professional and personal reputations can be catastrophic.
We understand the law surrounding social media in multiple jurisdictions. Our solicitors will work with you to quickly ascertain the damage and put together a containment strategy.
By working with specialist IT providers and cyber-security experts, we can provide the fast action required to protect your individual or corporate brand.
Providing protection for your business
In theory, anyone in your organisation who has access to your social media accounts can make comments or changes. It is therefore imperative that your business has a comprehensive social media policy that demonstrates you have undertaken a risk analysis and put in place policies and procedures to protect your clients, the wider public and your image.
We regularly assist HR teams draft social media policies and provide regular audits to ensure they are up-to-date with domestic and international regulations.
In addition, our team can advise you if someone has created a derogatory hashtag, trolling your social media accounts, or writing untrue reviews about your business on other websites. Such behaviour can lead to criminal prosecution, and you may also have a civil right to claim damages if the trolling has resulted in financial loss.
