A security administrator has concerns about new types of media which allow for the mass distribution of

There many companies that allow full use of social media in the workplace, believing that the marketing
opportunities it holds outweigh any loss in productivity. What they are unknowingly minimizing are the threats
that exist. Rather than being all new threats, the social networking/media threats tend to fall in the categories of
the same old tricks used elsewhere but in a new format. A tweet can be sent with a shortened URL so that it
does not exceed the 140-character limit set by Twitter; unfortunately, the user has no idea what the shortened
URL leads to. This makes training your employees regarding the risks social networking entails essential.
