Reputation in business goes a long way -- a company’s reputation is one of its biggest and most important assets. Because of its innate importance, reputation is also often considered to be the highest impact risk area to business strategy. Protecting reputation is a top issue for corporations across the globe, especially in the era of social media and the 24-hour news cycle, which spreads information, seemingly, at the speed of light. Opinions of clients, consumers and the general public mean much more now than they did 20 years ago, before the dawn of the internet age.

This panel will discuss how to manage your organization’s reputation risk and craft an action plan for response -- from failed corporate social responsibility practices to customer service failures, to ethical lapses, to data breaches -- and everything in between.

This program was recorded as part of ALM & Corporate Counsel's Annual General Counsel Conference on September 26th, 2019.
