Auditor Tradecraft Skills Series
Auditing Social Media - Avoid a social media mess.
Definition: A social media management audit is a series of steps taken to evaluate and optimize critical processes supporting the social media strategy. Performing a social media audit can help any organization to stay on top of its virtual presence.
Conducting a social media audit is a key part of managing the operational risks within this social media driven world.
You will hear sensible solutions to controlling the chaos that comes with social media connections. Social media needs to be managed properly with internal controls to reduce the inherent risks it creates.
Completing a social media management audit answers several questions about the relationship between an organization and its virtual audience including:
- Do policies align with and promote good practices?
- Are the appropriate virtual assets being acquired?
- Do processes adequately mitigate reputation risks?
- Is access security adequate?
- Are there sound controls over the use of virtual assets?
The internal audit of Social Media can have within its scope:
- Does a presence on Twitter bring in new customers?
- Is the Facebook page retaining old ones?
- Are there virtual profiles that are not in line with an organization's marketing plan?
- An effective internal audit helps to realign virtual assets or indicate they need to be disposed of.
This timely, two hour CPE training event is designed for the experienced internal auditor and others who have to create a realistic assessment of the Social Media assets of an organization.

People are the heartbeat of every organization and need to be developed and supported.

The compelling content typically contains good visuals to stimulate recall along with clear and concise language. As a service provider, Robert's approach is honest yet empathetic. The internal audit funciton and management can work together to evaluate processes in an organization to bring out the best in everyone.
Robert has worked as an auditor and an accountant in small and multi billion dollar organizations. You will find the standard alphabet soup behind his name (CPA, CIA, etc), but improving people, processes and profits is what matters most.
