Locking down social networking vunerabilities

Seminar Details
In the past year Social Networking has exploded – with an estimated 700 million business users worldwide. Networking sites have obvious the business advantages and disadvantages, but how do these measure up against the security issues presented? Different employees and companies have different reasons for the use of these sites, and in turn promote different policies. And the combination of the old guard and digital natives can produce significant differences in expectations of worktime access to internet services. This session seeks to explore the potential pitfalls of Social Networking use, to advise how to mitigate these threats, and to identify the considerations for drafting and enforcing the best policy for your organisation.
