"Tackling Social Media Issues"

Tuesday, May 3, 2011

12:00 - 1:00 pm, eastern [archive and transcript to follow]

The phenomenal growth in use of social media has fueled a wealth of interpretive issues in the federal securities laws. These issues will continue to multiply as the use of the Web - and mobile web - promises to evolve dramatically over the next few years. Join these experts:

  • Tom Kim, Chief Counsel, SEC's Division of Corporation Finance
  • Eddie Best, Partner, Mayer Brown LLP
  • Karen Dempsey, Partner, Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP
  • Dave Lynn, Editor, TheCorporateCounsel.net and Partner, Morrison & Foerster LLP
  • Dominic Jones, Editor, IR Web Report

Among other topics, this program will cover:

  • What are companies doing now under the SEC's 2008 guidance regarding Regulation FD?
  • What issues should you consider when employees use social media?
  • What compliance issues arise for inadvertent leaks of earnings information - as well as other sensitive data - on company's own sites? Or how about if they leak outside a company's site?
  • What are the lessons learned from those that have pioneered the use of web disclosure, social media and other online IR techniques?
