So a perfect storm is brewing around changing enterprise risk profiles due to social media and technology together with the inability of boards and leaders to understand and govern this new risk environment.
Given this, does anybody not think that corporations will continue to have social media or technology disasters, disruptions or problems moving forward? Of course they will -- but it doesn't have to be this way.

First, as I've said before Boards should add social media and technology skills into their Boardrooms. Second, they then need to get the social agenda onto the boardroom calendar.
I can offer help on both fronts, but together, we can help a lot of other Directors all around the world. To address the tactical board level activities that need to take place around social media and technology I produced the first ever Social Media and Technology Boardroom Calendar.
