Top five social media risks for businesses

Earlier today I blogged about the trend that brands get hijacked on Twitter. A report released today by ISACA confirms that this is a major risk for businesses. The white paper outlines five major social media risks for business and “brand hijacking” is one of them. Top five risks are:

  • Viruses/malware
  • Brand hijacking
  • Lack of control over content
  • Unrealistic customer expectations of “Internet-speed” service
  • Non-compliance with record management regulations

The full white paper Social Media:  Business Benefits and Security, Governance and Assurance Perspectives” can be downloaded here. [pdf]
