New Inter-Agency Social Media Cyber-Vandalism Toolkit Launched

Originally posted in DigitalGov blog

Federal agencies must prepare social media readiness procedures for cyber-vandalism, effectively recover control during an incident, and respond quickly to the public to maintain confidence in digital services.

A new toolkit developed by more than a dozen government managers and representatives from major social media platforms, “Readiness, Recovery Response: Social Media Cyber-Vandalism Toolkit,” will help agencies evaluate and improve security of their programs to ensure they are better prepared for emerging challenges.

In light of recent social media cyber-vandalism incidents affecting public services, the SocialGov Community — including almost 900 digital engagement managers from across government — assembled a working group tasked to compile a best practices resource any agency could customize.

One week later, following the rapid collaborative development process outlined in the U.S. Public Participation Playbook, the new resource is now available as a “living document” for continuous enhancement and expansion to match evolving technologies. We hope experts both within and outside government will continue to improve and expand upon with more training and resources as they develop.

The federal working group assembled to deliver this collaborative resource includes:

  • Alla Goldman, Information Sharing Environment, Office of the Director of National Intelligence
  • Ashley Wichman, GSA
  • Dan Kenny, GSA Emerging Leader Program
  • Dannielle Blumenthal, National Institute of Standards and Technology
  • David Hamm, State of Minnesota
  • Debra Harris, Defense Finance and Accounting Services
  • Jacob Parcell, GSA
  • Jessica Milcetich, USA.gov
  • Jordan Higgins, Defense Intelligence Agency
  • Jody Bennett, Department of State
  • Justin Herman, GSA
  • Kat Mullins, USAJobs
  • Natasha Lim, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission
  • Scott Horvath, U.S. Geological Survey
  • Travis Brickey, Tennessee Valley Authority

Representatives from all major social media platforms were also invited to participate, including active participation from teams from Facebook, Hootsuite, LinkedIn and more.

For more information, or to suggest enhancements to the new resource, please contact Justin Herman and Daniel Kenny.

Read the 2014 Contributed Papers for SLA 2014!

How do journalists verify the information they get through social media, and what role can information professionals play in this process? Can embedding a library hackfest into a first-year computer science course be an effective method of providing information literacy instruction and advocating for open access? What difference do professional associations supporting the library and information profession make to the members of the profession, to the employers of those members, and to the profession itself?

These and other interesting questions were addressed by SLA members who presented “contributed papers” at the SLA 2014 Annual Conference & INFO-EXPO. A total of 12 such papers were presented, four on each day of the conference. The contributed papers emerged from a process that began in October 2013, when a call for abstracts was posted on the SLA blog and on discussion lists. Roughly two dozen abstracts were submitted; from among these, 12 were selected to be developed into full papers.

The abstracts and papers were evaluated by a team of SLA members: Stacey Greenwell (chair), Joe Anteau, Giovanna Badia, Juanita Richardson, and Erin Waltz. The team members ultimately selected Organizing and Embedding a Library Hackfest into a First-Year Course, by Sarah Shuja of York University in Toronto, as the best contributed paper. Sarah will receive a free registration to the SLA 2015 Annual Conference in Boston, and she will be the subject of the “SLA Member Interview” in the September-October 2014 issue of Information Outlook.
