This excerpt from the event website explains why the Summit is so important for the DoD community: “With the introduction and adaptation of social media as a vital tool of communication in the Department of Defense, there is a constant struggle to maintain Operational Security and manage and mitigate the risks that come with it. Social media has been widely used in the military and government departments for recruitment purposes, counter media, psychological and special operations and warfare, information gathering and counter intelligence. The military, especially, has adapted an industrial approach to deal with social media, but with more resources and more needs, the military has learned to proactively leverage this new “environment” to achieve organizational goals.” Click here to register for the 4th Annual Social Media for Defense Summit!
