5th annual conference Social Media within the Defence & Military Sector 19th - 20th November

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 November 2015.

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.
