Social Media usage increases malware risks – Websense Survey


Recently, Websense sponsored a global survey of 4,640 IT and IT security practitioners about social media and security in their organizations. We asked them about:


  • The importance of social media in meeting business goals today.
  • Social media policies in their organizations
  • The security risks created by employee usage of social media tools


What interested us in the Security Labs was the increase in malware that has been opened up with social media in a business. You can see in the graph below that more than half of the respondents from around the globe suggested that they’ve seen an increase in attacks due to employees’ use of social media in the workplace.
