London based conference organisers SMi
Group, will open doors to host the 5th annual conference on
Social Media within the Defence & Military Sector on 19th - 20th
The one of a kind event will draw from an array of leading social
media gurus and digital experts as well as senior military from
around the world, to discuss the latest developments in operational
use; ROI; recruitment; crisis communication; and offer creative and
strategic guidance on campaign success, content and engagement.
With the rise of extremist groups becoming more pervasive through
sophisticated use of social media, this year’s conference will
include a featured presentation on the use of digital platforms for
recruitment and radicalisation, presented by retired Brigadier
General, Mark Goldblatt.
In current times when online platforms are being hijacked and used
as channels for promoting extremism, Mark Goldblatt, Founder and CEO
of the business intelligence and cyber security specialists,
Cycurity, will ask questions such as; What new tactics should
democracies adopt in order to protect themselves? Why have
democracies failed thus far? How is Implementing the “Iron Dome
principle” in overcoming numbers with technology, relevant? Can key
points of intervention be identified to form a coherent strategy?
Countering social media terrorism will also be discussed by the US
Department of Defence, where the Director of DoD Social Media, will
look ahead into future trends and patterns of engagement and assess
the methods used by terrorist organisations to spread ideals.
Set to open with a host nation address from the British Army's 77th
Brigade, other event highlights on the agenda include a special
guest address from a senior military spokesperson from Israel
Defence Forces, plus exclusive updates from Hootsuite, Saab, NATO
and the Home Office College of Policing.
