The recent faux media regarding an assault on the White House has a lot of corporations and federal agencies re-evaluating their social media security protocols. The FCW article “Agencies Shore up Social Media Security” discusses possible changes that could potentially help decrease social networking hacks before damage to the digital footprint is done.
GSA’s Center for Excellence in Digital Government new media manager Justin Herman explained:
“Federal guidelines will continue to evolve at the speed at which technology and capabilities demand. With changes like two-tiered authentication for social media accounts potentially on the horizon, and increased public interaction with federal agencies via social media, it’s a good bet the guidelines will be updated more frequently going forward. Everything now is based on capabilities we have at this moment, but the minute that apps change or policies and protocols or security services in the platforms themselves change, we’ll be on top of it and make sure the rest of the federal government knows about it too.”
Social media is evolving and logic dictates those that want to succeed will also evolve. Thus, strengthening the security around their digital footprint is a must, as it is much easier to interact and reach company goals with an untarnished digital reputation. Businesses ready to increase security but unsure of the current digital challenges will find the social media professionals at Arnold IT can evaluate, locate and eliminate social networking vulnerabilities, protecting their digital image.
