Social Threats – Social Media as an Attack Vector for Cyber Threats

Social media has become a core business and communications platform and every industry now faces a unique set of risks on social, many of which have put organizations in the press or at the centre of controversy. Whether it’s blocking targeted phishing attacks, protecting corporate accounts from compromise, fighting fraud or defending against scams and impersonating accounts, social media security is critical for modern business success. Social media security is the process of analyzing dynamic social media data in order to protect against cyber security and business threats. Social media is an evolving attack vector, which many organizations are blind to.
