Social Media: Business Benefits and Security, Governance and Assurance Perspectives

By Vigilize | Thursday, July 15, 2010 - One Comment

ISACA has published a white paper covering the impacts of social media; what is considered “social media”; risks, security, and privacy concerns; and other various issues concerning the business use of social media.

    Enterprises seeking to integrate social media into their business strategy must adopt a cross-functional, strategic approach that addresses risks, impacts and mitigation steps, along with appropriate governance and assurance measures.
