The nature of financial, health care, insurance and defense industries implies the non-negotiable need for high levels of regulation. In these stringent environments with strict controls on policies and procedures, leveraging social media platforms to increase collaboration among employees is challenging. To succeed, there is a need to establish well-defined processes, policies and codes of conduct to help employees use these social networking tools. The other dimension that adds to complexity is hosting environments - on-premise or hosted. It is equally important to ensure that all of the policies and procedures adhere to industry-specific acts like FINRA, HIPAA, HITECH, AIA (export control, IPR and copyright etc., policies), etc.
