On October 10, 2012 on I-Sight.com, Information Technology expert and author, Raj Goel, is featured in the article, “Tackling Information Security in the Age of Social and BYOD.”
Dawn Lomer, a Corporate Journalist of I-Sight, interviewed Goel who spoke about problems of social media in the workplace and BYOD, or “bringing your own device” to work. Goel discussed the importance of an employer having a written security policy that informs employees what they can and cannot do on social media. He stated that an employee who brings his own device into work is not just a security threat, but also a legal threat as well. To keep a company’s information secure, Goel suggests that employers should invest in their employees and customers as well as good training for employees. These are a company’s biggest assets. Employers should get a proper security assessment, and make sure they value their business appropriately, know their threats, and know their risks. After, employers should build their policies and training around the assessment.
