What do brokers need to know about social media?
Angela Weaver, focus group leader for media at Beazley, spoke to Insurance Business about the risks of using social media and how brokers can get the education they need to thrive in this area.
Angela considers how the traditional risks associated with publishing– libel, breach of copyright, breach of confidence and trade marks etc – apply to social media. She warns of how these hazards affect organisations who, through the use of social media, become de facto publishers, before looking at the legal and financial consequences of getting it wrong. For brokers wanting to know more, Angela also provides some useful tips on where to find free information about this hot topic.
