Users can authenticate to a company’s web applications using their credentials from a popular social media
site. Which of the following poses the greatest risk with this integration?
Malicious users can exploit local corporate credentials with their social media credentials
Changes to passwords on the social media site can be delayed from replicating to the company
Data loss from the corporate servers can create legal liabilities with the social media site
Password breaches to the social media site affect the company application as well
Social networking and having your company’s application authentication ‘linked’ to users’ credential that they
use on social media sites exposes your company’s application exponentially more than is necessary. You
should strive to practice risk avoidance.
