New surveys recently conducted have found that more than a quarter of employers have fired workers for misusing email and one third have fired workers for misusing the Internet on the job. How big of a role does malicious code sent through email and web threats play in this scenario? Surfing the web and email are two of the biggest vectors for web threats and letting users have unrestricted and unprotected freedom to use and surf at will could cost your company big bucks.
This presentation will look at what your corporate policies should cover and how you can enforce those policies. The growth of Web 2.0 has led everyone to creating a place to share information about themselves and their employers, sometimes breaching confidentiality rules. MySpace, Facebook and similar sites are now a big target for the bad guys to infect a large number of users in a short amount of time. We will look at how users bypass the protection that companies have spent large amounts of money on, just to see the latest joke/picture/video that is circulating the Internet. Finally, we will take a look at the legal issues and the costs web threats pose to your company, looking at some real-world examples.
