Futurum Consultancy and Training provides services to help reduce and mitigate the threats presented by employees’ online activities and thereby protecting your organisations valuable assets, trade secrets and intellectual property. It is well known that Foreign Intelligence Services and competitors are actively profiling individuals through their online profiles and social media content provides an easy means to do this and target employees who will then be singled out for elicitation operations or direct recruitment. Our services include helping to develop effective social media strategies and policies.
The services we provide include:
Social Media Policy Development
A lot of organisations don't have a ‘Use of Social Media’ policy for staff. If you are one of those organisations Futurum can help you design a policy that meets your specific needs and articulates the associated risks and your expectations.
Futurum can deliver short workshops at your premises. The workshops are informal and are intended to raise awareness amongst staff of how a digital footprint is created, and how it can be maliciously exploited. These are usually half a day long and can accommodate up to 20 personnel.
By tracking the social networking activities of employees and ex-employees Futurum can research and provide a confidential report on your company's social media profile being created by staff.
Pre-employment Social Media Profiling
Futurum can provide support to your recruitment process by undertaking research into prospective employees’ digital footprint and providing you with a profile of their online activity and associates.
