While tools such as Web 2.0 applications, IM, P2P and portable USB media can be great for business innovation and productivity, they can introduce significant risks when not managed properly. Unfortunately, too many organisations fall into two extremes when it comes to reining in these risks. On one end, very security-conscious organisations have reacted by simply banning these technologies - a practice quickly falling out of favour among line-of-business leaders. And on the other end of the spectrum, many more practical organisations have chosen to develop acceptable-use policies for these tools without any real enforcement. To truly realize the benefits while curtailing the risks, organisations must find a way to strike a happy balance that allows for the safe use of new technologies.
