Security at work – should you ban social media in your company?

As a CISO, should you impose a ban on social media in your organisation in the name of security?

Thom Langford, Founder, TL(2) Security and Christian Toon, CISO, Pinsent Masons, discuss the challenges around employees using social media in the workplace. The topic was sparked by this article in Infosecurity Magazine which reports that Chinese-owned video sharing app TikTok has been banned for use by US soldiers due to growing security concerns.
