Miami, FL, April 23, 2012 — This month, Mr. Bahadur will discuss the risks surrounding corporate use of Social Media at the IBM Impact 2012 Conference in Las Vegas NV (http://www-01.ibm.com/software/websphere/events/impact/). The IBM Impact 2012 Global Conference will bring together technology and business leaders at a single event for a transformative learning opportunity. The Social Media talk will focus on how companies should protect themselves from inappropriate Social Media usage both internal and external to the company.
What new security challenges will be posed by Social Media utilization in the workplace?
Companies, both large and small, have to develop and manage their social media presence. Those that resist or procrastinate can be attacked in 140 characters or less. How does a company develop it’s strategy without inviting the common pitfalls, including everything from costly litigation to breaches of confidential information?
How does a company protect itself from inappropriate social media usage by employees, either through malicious intent or by committing simple mistakes? What processes should be put in place to provide structured methods for dealing with social media, for educating employees and for monitoring and maintaining a positive social media presence? What procedures are required to deal with unexpected crises in communications, to mitigate the impact of unfavorable mentions and actions? How do you protect corporate assets, trademarks, copyrights, and confidential information from misuse?
Mr. Bahadur, the co-author of “Securing the Clicks: Network Security in the Age of Social Media” brings these challenges to life.
