Social Media Security

Social Networking allows us so many positives but brings with it key risks we must address in the modern enterprise. Social media can be a great place to connect with new customers, expand our brand presence and even drive sales. At the same time it makes for a veritable playground for social engineering or the latest web based malware. We face risks and rewards and need to balance them by practicing smart social media security. While comprehensive enterprise security technologies from the network to the desktop are a piece of the puzzle they are no security panacea. Uneducated end users can be a threat that circumvents all those efforts in one click, a cleverly disguised download or seemingly innocent email. End users don’t have to be the weakest link. In an interview I had earlier this month I with Jane McPherson on Patrolling the Channel of I spoke to this very issue. I’d like to personally thank Jane for the chance to share our knowledge. Take a listen and let us know what you think. Are you planning for social media security training?
