    Flipping The Script On Security Spending

    More than 90% of advanced threats targeting your company comes from email, yet a very small portion of the security budget is dedicated securing this vital communication channel. Network and endpoint security still receives the lion’s share of cybersecurity budgets today.

    The trouble is the majority of advanced cyber threats target people using email, social media, and mobile applications as a way to gain access to an organization, steal information, money and potentially damage an organization’s reputation.

    In other words, many of today’s security investments are not effectively stopping the threats and are not providing protection in the right places. Attackers are moving away from using exploit kits. They’re creating threats that have no malware. They’re exploiting the human factor, getting an organization’s employees to do the work for the attackers by tricking employees into providing their credentials or enticing them to open a malicious document.

    Understanding FTC Compliance Risks In Sponsored Posts And Native Ads

    Social media compliance is a big job, and it can be difficult to handle every detail yourself. Ensuring compliance requires knowledge, following procedures, and constant monitoring. Especially now that the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is really cracking down on businesses staying compliant on social media.

    For example, the FTC now has clear-cut guidelines around sponsored posts and “native advertising,” which are ads designed to look like editorials, news articles, product reviews and entertainment. The FTC allows this approach. But it requires a business to make certain, through clear disclosures, that consumers understand they’re reading or viewing paid messaging.

    • Areas where the FTC can affect your messaging
    • What happens when the Government steps in
    • What’s required for social compliance
