With each passing day social media sites like Facebook , Twitter and others are becoming more integrated into our daily lives. So much digital information is being share that it staggers the mind to think about it.
However from a security perspective there is a silver lining here and that is this data can be monitored in a way to help in mitigating certain risks for schools , colleges, universities and other institutions
Research now shows that a very large percentage of all threats of violence against schools for example are made via social media. The monitoring of social media for threat based statements or keyword phrases is a very powerful proactive measure that NewDawn Security provides as one of our many security services.
