Special Counsel, Michelle Sherman, will be giving a webcast on Wednesday, February 23, 2011 on social media policies for Government Contractors.
The Navy has one. The Army just got one. A social media compliance program, that is. Whether or not your business has a social media policy, this program on social media compliance for government contractors and government attorneys will give you practical guidance in this new area for compliance programs.
The program will start with why every business should have a social media policy, the elements of a basic policy, and additional guidelines for government contractors who work on special access programs. The webcast will address the ways in which having a security clearance should temper how your employees are accepting "friends" on Facebook, and the discussions they may be having on LinkedIn or blogs.
- How social media compliance programs should be monitored and implemented
- How businesses cannot use social networking activity for employment decisions
Because social networking activity can possibly result in a security clearance being denied or revoked, this program is worth the time investment of anyone working on government contracts or hoping to work on them in the future.
