Risk Management for Internal Social Media Collaboration Tools - published November 2013

Introduction
Within regulated industries, such as Financial Services, Life Sciences, and Consumer Goods, organizations have been fearful to adopt social media platforms due to perceived risk and unclear regulation. Taking into account the value of these platforms, the proven benefits outweigh the perceived risks for adoption. In addition, the question of whether to embrace social media is no longer a question of “if,” but rather “when.”

Transcript: Social Media Monitoring and Compliance for Regulated Industries

Today’s material represents our thinking in what is an incredibly fast moving field having to do with the intersection social media and compliance. We’ll specifically be thinking about questions regarding whether or not an organization participating in social media are listening in as obligated, responsible or liable for the activities that take place. If we needed anything to underscore just how important such a discussion is today, you need look no further than the front pages of the recent New York newspapers and the Wall Street Journal with recent news articles about the SEC communication regarding the use of social media as an official means of communication or industry relations. Secondly, some of the recent articles written have to do with social media guidelines and communicated regarding the New York Police Department. Read More…

GRC award

GRC 20/20 Award 2013
Managing risk in social networks. 

OpenQ’s SafeGuard™ is addressing the risk of social technologies in regulated industries that have held back from using social technology because of GRC concerns. SafeGuard can be used with any social platform and is currently integrated into more than a dozen platforms.  It monitors risk from interactions over social networking platforms for regulated-industries to enforce corporate policy and regulatory compliance. SafeGuard collects and analyzes data, identifying levels of risk and enabling personnel to address any issues with its workflow-driven remediation capabilities. The product analyzes the internal social data streams and external social media to identify, quarantine and enable management of risk. There are similar products on the market that use keyword searches, however, SafeGuard’s social compliance technology uses a policy/signature driven approach, similar to that of antivirus software, which can adapt to industry and company needs.  It is the first and only product for policy-driven social compliance in the health, life science, and financial services ecosystems.
