With the explosion of digital media, reputational harm is now quantifiable for the first time and harm in words, pictures and videos stay visible for all to see once its been published. Understanding what the risks are and how we got an Insurance company to underwrite for a threat of harm in words is all part of what you will learn from this presentation. Risks that happen fast, destroy businesses in seconds and with real costs to businesses to deal with it the problem is only escalating. Find out how digital media allows reputations to be destroyed and what can be done to counter act it.

  • why reputation in the digital space is unique
