About this Webcast:

Social media offers users vibrant online communities, and efficient and often fun ways to interact and share information. Social media also creates privacy, security and intellectual property risks for individuals and businesses. These risks come from outsiders, such as hackers’ social engineering schemes or cyber espionage, and insiders, whether purposefully or carelessly.

Increasingly, hackers gather information via social media that gives them the keys to unlock your networks and access valuable business information. According to Cisco’s Annual Cyber Security Report, Facebook® scams ranked third on their list of most common web attack methods. With nearly 1.8 billion monthly active users worldwide, Cisco wrote, “it is logical territory for cyber criminals and other actors looking to dupe users” with fake offers, fake news content and fake surveys. Facebook “hijacking,” meanwhile, ranks number 10.

Join us for a complimentary, CLE-eligible webinar where two experienced attorneys – one with a corporate legal department and one in private practice – will address these issues and more.

Topics we will cover:

  • The common social media scams used by “the bad guys”
  • Your most commonly exploited vulnerabilities
  • Risk to your brands, personnel, customers and more
  • Lessons learned from recent attacks
  • Effective ways to prevent and mitigate losses
