A Simplified Approach to BYOD
As agencies adopt social networking to engage employees, government stakeholders and the citizenry, users must appropriately balance the need for transparency with adherence to privacy and cybersecurity protocols. The existing rules of behavior that govern the dissemination and safeguarding of information may no longer apply in the new social media milieu.
The authors of this paper reviewed existing literature and interviewed several public sector organizations to identify emerging best practices for safely and securely using social media. This information can be used by the Government to inform potential new policies and associated training that govern the appropriate rules of behavior for using social media in the workplace.
