We live in the age of the leaky corporation in which the wrong information slips easily into the wrong hands.
Some organisations think the best solution is to restrict access to the internet and/or social media. But at what cost to an organisation’s ability to communicate externally? I recently met with the regional communications lead at a major global bank who turned out to be the only person in Asia with access to Twitter. Little surprise that the individual felt restricted in what could be achieved online.
So it is good to hear IT exponents argue cutting internet access is not a realistic answer.
