EXPERT advice to protect businesses in the digital and social media age will be delivered during a free seminar, running as part of Lincolnshire Business Week.
Oliver Tasker, Senior solicitor at the region’s leading law firm Wilkin Chapman solicitors, will be leading the ‘Digitally Prepared or Digitally Scared?’ morning seminar on Tuesday, October 17.
Making business leaders aware of the consequences of not putting a proper digital framework in place will be the focus of his and solicitor Laura Clark’s attention.
A specialist in employment law and HR based at the firm’s offices, in The Maltings, Brayford Wharf East, Lincoln, Mr Tasker will advise on the need for sound social media policies to be communicated effectively to all staff in conjunction with clear training.
He said: “Social media is a powerful marketing and communication tool. However, when things go wrong reputations of both employers and employees can be damaged.
“The seminar will provide delegates with a clear insight into the legal implications of social media in the workplace through practical case studies.”
Mr Tasker will be joined at the event by digital security expert Stuart Green. A leader in the field for more than two decades, Mr Green – the driving force behind SJG Digital – has helped organisations across the UK develop their defences against cyber attack
With GCHQ-backed certifications, Mr Green spends much of his time providing specialist hardware and advice to organisations as they adopt the Government's Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus Certifications.
The free two-hour seminar, with registration at 8am, is being run from the Lincoln offices of Wilkin Chapman as part of events for Lincolnshire Business Week, which starts on Monday, October 16.
