Social media networks provide individuals and businesses with exciting opportunities to communicate and collaborate with others throughout the world. But with these opportunities come a number of security challenges and risks. This talk will outline how social media networks can pose various threats to businesses, from information leakage, reputational damage, to social engineering profiling, and vectors for enabling compromise of corporate systems. Social media networks also enable the rapid dissemination of news which in the event of an information security breach could either save or destroy an organisations reputation. Understanding and dealing with these challenges will enable companies to like and favourite social media networks in a secure way.

Brian Honan is an independent security consultant based in Dublin, Ireland, and is the founder and head of IRISSCERT, Ireland's first CERT. He is a Special Advisor to Europol's Cybercrime Centre (EC3), an adjunct lecturer on Information Security in University College Dublin. He is the author of the book "ISO 27001 in a Windows Environment" and co-author of "The Cloud Security Rules", and regularly speaks at major industry conferences. In 2013 Brian was awarded SC Magazine's Information Security Person of the year for his contribution to the computer security industry.
