Scotland's ambition to become 'digital by default' is hampered by firewall policies which are set to 'access blocked by default'. As part of Social Media Week 2012, Iriss joined forces with the Improvement Service to run a discussion forum on who should be taking the lead to allow greater access to social media (or, to be more accurate, personal knowledge management tools) in the workplace. Ian Watson presents highlights from the discussion.

The panel was chaired by Deputy Chief Constable Gordon Scobbie, Tayside Police, Lead for Social Media for UK Police, and the panel members were:

Louise Macdonald: Chief Executive, Young Scot Colin Cook: Deputy Director for Digital Strategy and Programmes at the Scottish Government Alastair Rennie: Amor Group and SOCITM, the Society for IT Management Peter Cruickshank: Centre for Social Informatics at Edinburgh Napier More about Social Media Week
