  • Reputational Risk Management: This program examines the relationship between reputational risk management and company performance, and offers practical methods for shifting a company’s internal perception of reputational risk management from being a discipline focused on mitigation to a discipline focused on optimization. The advent of social media has been a two-edged sword for the filed of reputational risk management; while it opens new avenues for brand engagement, it also opens new risks and challenges fro brand reputations as well as security risks. It also requires a much higher degree of social and cultural awareness than ever before, as well as the ability to implement sound communication strategies in real time. Reputational risk management is no longer a passive, reactionary practice, but a core business practice that affects everyone in the organization from the shareholders to the customers.
