Social media within the corporate network: Discussion & best practices with legal counsel in the Fortune 500

Legal Counsel from CISCO Systems, and Mayer Brown, will be joined by Landmark Ventures' Chief Information Security Officer to have an interactive discussion on the growing risks enterprises face as they increasingly integrate social media into their communications pipeline. Panelists will share their insights on how organizations can best protect themselves within the unfamiliar area of new information streams infiltrating the corporate network, and how to navigate and manage these streams for purposes of eDiscovery.

The one hour webinar will provide participants with ways to better manage related content on Social Media and Social Networking sites, along with Personal Messaging Repositories, in anticipation of discovery requests. Panelists will offer their advice on preventative measures organizations can implement to avoid being liable for unapproved content existing in an information stream that may be undiscovered.

  • Michael Lackey (Partner, Mayer Brown)
  • Van Dang (Vice President, Law & Deputy General Counsel, CISCO Systems)
  • Robert Gallucci (CISO, Landmark Ventures)
