(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – CIOsynergy, a provider of thought leading events, today announced ZeroFOX’s, The Social Risk Management Company™, participation at its event on June 26, 2014 at the Sheraton New York Times Square Hotel in New York, New York.
ZeroFOX enables organizations to protect and grow their brand leveraging the benefits of social media while being mindful and diligent of its risks to reputation, human capital and enterprise security. Social media platforms are widely adopted communications platforms that represent one of the largest risks to business security and are completely invisible to management and security teams. These risks cannot be simply avoided, locked down, blocked or throttled. Organizations that take this threat seriously and implement a comprehensive risk strategy put their organizations in a position to protect their brand against fraud, social impersonations, blackmail, undue exposure and compromise, and other reputation or legal harm.
“We are thrilled to have ZeroFOX at CIOsynergy New York. As leading provider of social risk management solutions, their presence will provide event attendees with an additional layer of industry insights and thought leadership,” says Patrick Mason, Director of Communications and Marketing at CIOsynergy.
“CIOs have a serious challenge ahead of them. Considering the volume of traffic moving across social networks and the range of malicious actors out there, organizations that are leveraging social media are opening themselves up to an immense amount of risk and vulnerability,” said James C. Foster, CEO of ZeroFOX. “Social media in the enterprise is a completely uncontrolled asset and while leveraging social channels for business purposes has proven important it also significantly extends the organizations’ attack surface.”
CIOsynergy New York is an exclusive opportunity for leading local CIO and IT executives to network and brainstorm daily hurdles in an unparalleled learning environment under the umbrella of John Sculley.
