Whilst that might not seem a lot, it underscores the need to educate employees about the risk arising from social network usage. A case in point is the Koobface worm, which has plagued Facebook and Twitter, affecting as many as 3 million computers.

The goal of this masterclass is to provide effective and appropriate guidance on security, privacy controls, best practices, and other important issues associated with social networking websites. By using highly accessible Internet-based tools, users can create content and engage in peer-to-peer conversations and exchanges (e.g., Blogger, Twitter, YouTube, Flickr, Facebook, etc.).
