Social Media Risk and Governance

Period: Mar 01, 2015 - Jun 25, 2021
Status: laufend

Social media risk has gained a lot of attention in recent years. This study investigates the governance of social media risk and risk assessment. The first phase of the work (conducted between December 2014 and July 2015) examines risk governance and the readiness of executive board members/risk committees for managing emerging social media risks. Our objectives are to gain an understanding of:

  • the significance of social media risks from different stakeholder groups
  • experiences of social media risks, organizationally and individually (eg. attitudes, meanings, importance)
  • how social media risks are being governed in organisations

The outcomes of the work will provide both theoretical and practical guidance towards social media risk governance in the form of risk classifications and risk profiles, and risk governance strategies.


In progress.
