  21. Managing Risk Develop and update social media policies with reference to images, inappropriate online behaviours, bullying, privacy and discrimination Act quickly when inappropriate online behaviour comes to light. Make sure that staff and students are advised on what they can do to stay safe and protect themselves form unwanted intrusion when using social media sites. Train staff in appropriate use of social media and to make it clear that online misconduct will be treated seriously. The guiding principle is, if you wouldn’t say it to someone’s face or write it down in a letter and post it to somebody then do not publish it online or send it in an email or text! Be prepared to use screen shots, texts and emails received as part of the evidential basis for taking disciplinary action against staff and student who do not behave appropriately online.
