Why is Social Media training important?

News that an employee has landed themselves in hot water for posting something they shouldn't on social media is becoming increasingly commonplace with the advent of more and more social platforms. Maybe, like most people, you've even wondered how on earth could someone think that was OK to post? The truth is often a mixture of unclear social media policy at work and lack of proper training on the issue. Organisations shouldn't ignore the weighty reputational – even financial – risks that that come along with the prevalence of social media outlets and the things they could be used for. Neither should they ignore the risks of cyber-criminals hoping to mine employee data on social media, or even infect your entire network. Employees should be empowered to spot, tackle, and avoid making these social media mistakes.
