It’s been said that “A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth can even pull its boots on.” In today’s world of online commentary and social media, this is truer than ever.
In the cyber-world, you or your company may be accused of selling defective goods, providing poor service, misleading customers, defrauding the government, or committing unethical or criminal conduct. These accusations can appear in e-mails to your clients or government enforcement agencies, as posts on blogs or company websites, or in streamed videos on social media. What’s more, they can be made or circulated by competitors or persons cloaked behind the anonymity of the internet, making it difficult (but not impossible) to hold responsible persons accountable.
As a result, internet defamation cases are on the rise. A surprise reputational attack in the cyber-world requires quick thinking and a game plan.
