What is Social Media Insecurity?

One of the greatest challenges to privacy and security in the next several years is Social Networks and Social Media. Sites like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, MySpace, and others can spell the downfall of valuing information. The ability to share and provide information is completely opposite to network security requirements. This is really encouraging people to do things that are not security conscious activities.

Millions of people have multiple accounts in Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, and Linkedin, just to name a few. But sharing of information has moved beyond your personal circle of friends and family. Social media is becoming less social and more… well, more corporate. You can equate it to many people shouting in a bar, you are all in close proximity, but you can’t distinguish the individual conversations, you can’t make out who the people really are, or who is a potential quality relationship. Someone you do not want contacting you in that bar can easily find you if they want to, because you have put yourself out there.
