Besides writing security articles and making videos, I also present a lot for WatchGuard. Over the past few years, I’ve traveled all over the place giving talks on various security topics, both in person and virtually. Between researching the topics, writing the presentations, and then delivering them over and over again, I often feel like I’ve already “covered” a particular topic and told “everyone” about it. Yet today I realized the obvious. I haven’t really shared much of my presentation content with the WatchGuard Security Center readers.
Shame on me. Today, I’ll begin rectifying that.
Last week, I did a webinar at BrightTalk, describing some of the dangers posed by social networks and Web 2.0 applications. That webinar shares the same title as this post. I wrote this social network presentation awhile ago, but it is still quite relevant today. Luckily, BrightTalk records these webinars, so I can share it with you.
If you’re interested in learning why I believe Social Networks — especially Facebook — will be one of the largest targets for malware over the next few years, check out my webinar. Of course, I also share tips on protecting yourself from social network threats (both user- and business-focused tips).
Do note, if you’ve never used BrightTalk before you will have to register the first time you view a presentation. So far the audience has rated my presentation positively, so I’d like to hope that the information I share is worth the slight irritation of another registration. Also, if you have any comments or questions on the presentation, feel free to ask me in the comments section below. — Corey Nachreiner, CISSP (@SecAdept)
