Summary : "Blocking access to Facebook and Twitter at the firewall does not solve the social media security problem. As safeguards become more capable, attackers are increasingly turning to the weakest link in our business systems the employees' lack of awareness. Social media sites such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter are making life easier for attackers seeking to leverage our employees' poor risk decisions. In this session, Scott Wright, of the Social Media Security Podcast, will highlight the major threats that target human actions in social media sites, and the important risk decisions employees need to be aware of to keep their employers' information safe. Topics will range from tip-offs that you might be the subject of an attack, to how the information you post to websites and apps can put sensitive information at risk at home, in the office and on the road."
