Press Release (ePRNews.com) - NEW YORK - Feb 02, 2017 - The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, announced today that it has scheduled a live webcast entitled: The Blurry Line Between Regulation and Social Media: Legal Landscape Explored! LIVE Webcast. This one-hour event is scheduled on February 9, 2017 at 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM ET.
More and more government agencies are using social media to keep the public informed about their missions. However, with the power of the social media comes the potential for abuse. A report from the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) concludes that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) “violated federal law and took part in covert propaganda by using social media to solicit support for an Obama Administration rule aimed at protecting streams and surface waters.” The GAO’s finding may signal more rigorous scrutiny of agencies’ use of social media. To what extent can agencies use social media to carry out their regulatory functions, and how do those limits affect the regulated communities? How may the “ground rules” for the government change in the rapidly evolving universe of internet communication?
The Knowledge Group is producing a LIVE Webcast: The Blurry Line Between Regulation and Social Media: Legal Landscape Explored! to help the audience better manage the significant issues surrounding this topic. Speakers will also offer best practices in developing and implementing effective risk mitigation strategies while ensure compliance with applicable laws.
Key issues that will be covered in this course are:
§ EPA’s Social Media Campaign
§ Government Accountability Office’s Report
§ Social Media Legal Framework
§ Recent Issues and Developments affecting the use of social media
§ Risk Mitigation Strategies
