What is Social Media Security?

Social media security is the practice of using tools, processes and methods of analysis to manage the risk, threats and vulnerabilities the use of social media introduces to people, places and brands.

The risks that social media introduces to people, places and brands.

Social media has proven itself to be a valuable tool for those who want to exploit the sharing of public data for nefarious purpose. Social media users are usually unaware of risk that comes with location disclosure and over sharing. The disclosure of location can lead to many cyber and physical security risks. Over sharing provides a wealth of information that allows social media to be used as a cyber weapon. Many organizations do not want their personnel to be susceptible to surveillance by criminals, competitors, governments and other third-parties.
