Educate your employees about online threats and how to protect your business’ data, including safe use of social networking sites. Depending on the nature of your business, employees might be introducing competitors to sensitive details about your company’s internal business and trade secrets. Employees should be informed about how to post online in a way that does not reveal any trade secrets to the public or your competitors. Hold employees accountable to the business’ internet security policies and procedures.
If your company does not have an internet security policy and procedure in place, contact Aspendora at (281) 941-4028, or firstname.lastname@example.org, for help in drafting your policy. In today’s social media climate, these policies should be included as part of the employee handbook.
