Social media is a dominant force in today's world of connectedness. Its use is still growing in all parts of the world, and with that, the risk is growing exponentially. Within an organization, use of social media by different departments can compromise the reputation of the organization and staff. Changes in internet usage, such as the proliferation of mobile devices and the rising use of social media, have presented new challenges for cybersecurity.
A significant sticking point when it comes to properly leveraging social media is dealing with the many risks to which companies are exposed. Assessing corporate risk on social media is only one area that needs to be watched. The social media usage of our employees and suppliers is another area that needs to be monitored as it is the easiest way hackers gain entry into our networks.
