Simplex-IT was pleased to host Tim Dimoff, nationally recognized security expert and President of SACS Consulting (http://www.sacsconsulting.com), who gave the 30+ attendees his views on what to look out for with Social Media in the workplace. Several real-world scenarios were presented and discussed, highlighting the importance of having and enforcing a clear written policy regarding employees’ use of Social Media.

Tim’s presentation was centered on the fact that while Social Media is the fastest growing segment of business e-marketing, unrestricted employee access to these tools has a great deal of negative potential. These include:

- Lost Productivity

- Corporate Security Breaches

- Potentially HIGH legal costs and much more!

The inevitable conclusion of Mr. Dimoff’s presentation was every business should be using social media and EVERY business must learn to regulate it. At Simplex-IT, we concur!
