New technology - the threat to corporate information

I've expressed my frustration at the 'what if inaccurate information gets posted' in a presentation here.

Norman, I have recently set up a network for my L&D colleagues using Ning and was not surprised to find 74 colleagues had joined in a little over a week after I sent out only three invites. The team head count is 150 so almost half the population (and believe it or not, not everyone has access to the Internet in some areas) so I was pretty please with myself and the team for embracing this online tool!

Feedback has been great and my colleagues are loving the fact they are now an online community.......HOWEVER

I now have to convince information security and regulatory risk that the network is:

1) Safe, in terms of the actual website itself and will not pose a risk to our own internal servers
2) Does not pose any risk to the organisations reputation or contain sensitive information
3) Will not contain ANY training content / material

This is all new to me but it is interesting speaking to people within my organisation who still see these tools as 'the enemy' and the lengths they will go to in order to put a stop to them.

Unfortunately for them I don't think this beast will be tamed and has brought our team closer together in one week than a years worth of telecasts and conference calls.

Here's to spreading the inaccurate word!
