There is nothing like a social network hack to remind us all that the social media security concerns touted by IT and Risk departments are not only valid but critical.

For marketers and digital governance professionals, these risks are known and we do our best to manage them. Managing governance for a large digital footprint has always had its challenges; and managing social media governance from home adds even more security risks!
