Social media is the locus of an increasing share of discussion and media activity worldwide. While this offers opportunities in intelligence gathering and sentiment assessment, social media can also be a potential communications threat. How can the defence/intelligence community best prepare to take advantage of the capabilities afforded by social media?

SMi’s event on Social Media within the Defence and Military Sector will address this and much more when the 4th annual show returns to London this autumn.

The threats and opportunities in Social Media will be discussed in greater depth during a post conference interactive workshop hosted by PR Agency, Edelman Digital.

Philip Trippenbach, Account Director of Strategic Innovation and Emil Madsen, Digital Planner, will provide detailed insights into the regional and local aspects of social media participation, rules of engagement, crisis management and active operations.

Edelman is the world’s largest independent Public Relations Agency, with over 4,800 people in 67 offices worldwide. They provide strategic thinking and deliver high-impact campaigns, across the full spectrum of communications.

The workshop entitled: Strategic Review, Threats and Opportunities in Social Media, will aim to provide attendees with:

  •     An understanding of potential threats and opportunities inherent in social media
  •     Guidance on social media listening and intelligence gathering
  •     Strategic insights into workflow and governance for effective social media participation (rules of engagement)
  •     A look into the global, regional and local dimensions of social media interaction
