As social media solutions become more complex, IT organizations are becoming more involved to work with business strategists on ways to mitigate risks. Security, compliance, confidentiality, data loss prevention, brand reputation, and human resource concerns (i.e., ethics/conduct) are issues that organizations cannot ignore. In this session, Burton Group’s Principal Analyst Mike Gotta and senior consultant Alice Wang address:
*What are the enterprise risks of social media and social networking?
*How does social media and social networking affect identity management strategies?
*What issues arise as “identity” spans consumer and workplace environments?
