Sharing what we do well is important. The challenge with social media is that it is not always clear the person sharing is actually in the classroom and when they were last there.

BYOD Security Issues: How safe is the common practice for employees to Bring their Own Device into work?

A myriad of threats:

* Employers often cannot assess data breach exposure on unmanaged BYODs

* When BYODs bypass inbound filters normally applied to corporate devices, they’re vulnerable to malware
