Social media is very much part of our lives and is used extensively by companies and their employees. While there are benefits in using social media, incorrect usage can have serious implications for both the company and the employee. Claiming ignorance is no defence or protection. Join us to gain a better understanding of the legal and reputational risks of social media within the business environment.

Emma’s areas of expertise include all aspects of print and electronic media law, with a particular focus on defamation, privacy and social media law. Her presentation will cover the social media landscape in South Africa as well as the legal considerations of using social media, including defamation, privacy, hate speech and intellectual property. She will also touch on common social media disclaimers (such as “tweets are not endorsements”, “I tweet in my personal capacity” etc.).

After the breakfast, guests are invited to visit the exhibition and stop by the ESDA stand.

The breakfast is free of charge and exclusively for ESDA members. To book, contact shirley@esda.org.za
