War of the Worlds – Business vs. Security in the Social Web

When it comes to the Social Web (Social Media, Social Networking, etc…), Business and Security can be on two totally different worlds. Business wants to open the social web to staff to spread the word while the security team knows these sites harbor some potentially bad stuff. In the August ISSA Baltimore meeting we will explore these two worlds and discuss topics such as:

  • What does the Social Web mean to business?
  • What are the threats of the Social Web?
  • How can we enable business while protecting it at the same time?

By exploring both sides of the issue you will be well equipped to enable business’ social web projects while mitigating risk for your organization.
