Managing the dangers of social media use at work

Social media blurs the boundaries between personal and professional personas. From sharing our political views to announcing our professional achievements, the way we present ourselves online today is how we and the organisations we are associated with are perceived by the outside world. 

Social Media: Communicating at Work is the latest addition to our cyber security training suite. It takes a practical and comprehensive approach to the dangers and pitfalls of social media use at work. Through immersive scenarios, real-life case studies and interactive exercises, educate your staff on how they can keep themselves and your business safe when using social media.
