Why You Need to Think Twice About Using Facebook, Twitter and Social Media

Welcome to PowerTalk. I’m your host, Chris Versace. These are my one-on-one conversations with the movers and shakers in the business world that take you behind the scenes and in the know.

One of the major shifts in how we communicate, network and stay in touch in one form or another has been social media. The list includes LinkedIn, Facebook, SnapChat, WhatsApp, Instagram, Google+, Twitter, Mention, addvocate, Sway, Grabber and many more. Believe me, each of them wants you to spend more and more of your time with them.

As we communicate and share more through these networks, there are pitfalls that you and companies need to be wary of. It’s not just fraud and impersonation, but phishing, malware and viruses as well.

Joining us on PowerTalk to discuss this is James C. Foster, the CEO of ZeroFOX. I can tell you that I was re-thinking my use of social media after talking to Foster — wait until you hear what he and his team have shared with their clients. Once you do, you’ll quickly understand why ZeroFOX is growing and growing quickly.
