How to Remove Defamation and Other Damaging Content from the Internet

Learn key strategies for removing defamatory content from the Internet.

A company's or individual's reputation has always been important, but in the Internet age, a reputation that took generations to build can be destroyed in as little as 140 characters. Today's constant and universal connections mean that in mere seconds, an attack on one's reputation can reach millions, which can make removing defamatory content seem nearly impossible. This topic will teach what constitutes defamation and the challenges individuals and companies face in protecting their reputation once attacked. Gain insight into what can be done to mitigate the risks of reputational attacks before they occur. Receive practical pointers for how to manage a crisis and remove defamatory content - tips developed from our team's broad experience. Reputational attacks not only impact the bottom line, but can rock the core of a business. However, implementing robust preparedness and recovery strategies can ensure that the same false statements are contained and do minimal damage. This information is critical to ensure that your company has the comprehensive strategies it needs to safeguard its reputation, especially in an interconnected world.
