The Internet – and any other technology advances related to it, such as cloud computing, e-commerce, mobile apps, and more – offers us many benefits that most of them are life-changing (e.g. the social media and cloud computing.) Unfortunately, just like any other good things in life, those benefits come with challenges. One of the most important challenges is online security issues, such as data breaches, network hacks, and many other security-related issues.
In the business world, oftentimes security threats are targeted to small and medium businesses (SMBs.) How so? The answer is: Lack of resources. To make matters worse, social media is also known as one of the major sources for data breaches; and yes, SMBs are using social media to boost their marketing efforts. Again, SMBs lack resources required to limit and track social media usage by their employees.
