In our last article, we discussed the importance of developing privacy and cybersecurity policies to address potential risks arising from employees who use third-party file-hosting services to store company data. We thereby emphasized the reality that if you have employees with laptop computers, some proportion of them is bound to be storing company data on assets that your company does not control. In this article, we consider an inevitable corollary to that reality: Some proportion of your employees (probably a significant portion of them) are using online social media — from Facebook to Twitter to Instagram, to name a few — in ways that your company does not control.
