Understanding Web 2.0 security in the workplace

Check Point and Ponemon Institute asked where Web 2.0 security risks rank on the list of priorities


  • Web 2.0 tools significantly lower the security posture of their organisations
  • Viruses and malware are common problems for insecure use of Web 2.0 applications, but not the only concern for businesses
  • Most IT administrators do not believe their organisations have sufficient resources dedicated to securing critical web applications
  • More security consciousness is needed in order to enable employees to utilise Internet applications, without compromising security. It’s a technological and user awareness issue
