On 21 March 2012, Berg, in conjunction with CY4OR, held an employment law seminar on ‘Managing the virtual world in our workplace’, at the Museum of Science and Industry, Manchester.

The breakfast session included talks on the benefits and potential risks of the use of social media in the workplace, how to set about protecting your business and how to conduct a forensic investigation
should confidential or other vital information leak into the public domain through social media or otherwise.

This was followed by a case study designed to invite attendees to think about how they would deal with an incident within their own business, and an analysis of key considerations organisations must deal
with when drafting a social media policy.

Thank you to all those that attended. The feedback from the event was very positive, with respondents particularly praising the usefulness and interactivity of the session on what is currently a very ‘live
issue’ for businesses.
