However, when it comes to securing your company’s brand from attacks, online reputation management becomes even more critical, especially in the realm of social media.

Consistently monitor your internal social media profiles
Whether it’s providing an ancillary customer service function or removing negative posts regarding your brand, it’s imperative to ensure that you are consistently monitoring all of your company’s social media profiles.
