AlignIT IT Manager Podcast #39 – Security in the Age of Social Media

A little while ago I posted about the new series that we’ve started – the Manager Tech Talk Video series. We broadcast our first episode in mid-August and from that broadcast, created an on demand video  and a new on demand audio podcast for our long-standing IT Manager podcast series. Woot! Here are all the details of the August episode…enjoy!

Technology is constantly changing. A few years ago, social media was used by a small select few and cloud computing was on the distant horizon. IT departments had enough to worry when it came to security with firewall breaches, phishing schemes and ensuring their in-house applications and company data were locked down. Today, new ways of doing business and providing IT services introduce new wrinkles into the game. But does the proliferation of social media applications really change anything when it comes to how an organization approaches IT security?

In this episode of the AlignIT Manager Tech Talk video series, my colleague Jonathan Rozenblit and I talk to Brian Bourne, president of CMS Consulting and co-founder of SecTor, Canada's premier IT security education conference about what IT managers need to know in order to ensure infrastructure security in today's environment.
