The Net Impact Conference starts today in San Jose, Calif., and we look forward to engaging with many of those in attendance – from executives who drive sustainability at Fortune 500 companies to college students who are the next generation of leaders in sustainability. If you’re among the 3,000 expected attendees, we invite you to come to a panel at noon on Saturday, Oct. 26, moderated by Symantec’s Senior Director of Corporate Responsibility, Cecily Joseph.

Joining Cecily on the panel will be Symantec’s Marian Merritt, our Norton Internet Safety Advocate; Michael Kaiser, executive director of the National Cyber Security Alliance; and Henk Campher, Senior Vice President, Business & Social Purpose and Managing Director, Sustainability at Edelman. Their in-depth discussion will focus on the topic, “Are You Safe Online? Corporate Responsibility in the Age of Social Media.”

In this age of redefining relationships online, people share their personal information through social media, which can make them more vulnerable to cyber threats. How you share your information can either help you realize the full potential of a connected world or leave you vulnerable. What does real-time online engagement look like when social media is an extension, rather than an addition, to your personal life? Our experts will answer these questions and many more.

If you are unable to join us at Net Impact, read up on Internet safety tips in this recent post by panel member Michael Kaiser and visit our CR in Action blog next week when Cecily will share highlights from the conference.
