Are you the kind of person that worries about what your employees are sharing via social media and other online outlets? Do you wonder if they’re putting your company and your brand at risk?
The simple answer is they’re probably not, but as a business owner, it’s your job to know what’s happening and the possible ramifications. Crain’s Detroit Business is hosting a free webinar for their readers from noon to 1 p.m. on Thursday, April 28. This data security webinar, called “Social media and cloud computing: Protecting yourself from fraud,” is part one of a three-part series, What Private Companies Need to Know.
According to the event information:
Even with widespread meeting coverage of the theft of personal information, intellectual property and other asset misappropriation, many private companies still underestimate their vulnerability to fraud both from external parties and employees they work with every day. What actions can company owners and executives take to be better informed of the risks and protect themselves and their companies?
We’ll discuss data security in the world of social networking and cloud computing along with the top things you should consider to protect your business from fraud. Join us to learn more about:
- Risks associated with social media (e.g. potential damage to brand image from employee, customer, or other third-party postings)
- Protecting your business when an out-of-sight, out-of-mind myriad of computer tasks happen on someone else’s equipment, i.e., in “the cloud”
- Preventing fraud, and mitigation strategies to consider if/when fraud occurs
Speakers include Joe Angileri, partner, Deloitte LLP, who is responsible for overseeing all Deloitte services provided to clients in the state, involving the activities of more than 1,000 professionals; Mark Ford, principal, Deloitte & Touche LLP, who is one of the most senior leaders in the Deloitte & Touche LLP’s Security & Privacy practice; and Robert Biskup, director, Deloitte Financial Advisory Services LLP, who has more than 25 years of experience in the corporate sector and private professional settings.
