Choose one of the social media platforms listed in the article above and research its privacy policy. Then prepare an “expert opinion” paper for the senior leaders in your organization. (If you cannot find the privacy policy for a given social media platform, choose a different platform.)

For your opinion paper, you must

  • perform additional research and then write your informed opinion as to the privacy issues that exist or may exist for that platform
  • identify specific privacy issues which could adversely affect Padgett-Beale
  • identify any additional issues with that platform which could adversely affect Padgett-Beale’s cybersecurity posture
  • answer the following questions in your paper
    • What do you think about your selected platform’s approach to privacy?
    • How would the platform’s privacy policy impact an organization that is contemplating using the platform for advertising and marketing?
    • Which of the social media services provided by the platform would you allow Padgett-Beale’s marketing department to use?
    • Should Padgett-Beale’s employees in general be permitted to use the platform during the work day (using company networks and/or IT resources). What risks are involved with permitting such usage?
  • what type of policy would you recommend that Padgett-Beale adopt to govern the organization’s use of social media platforms for marketing and other forms of internal and external communications?

Post your 5 to 7 paragraph “expert opinion” as a reply to this topic. Remember to cite your sources and include your reference list at the end of your posting.
