Social media is transforming information distribution. Social media users number in the billions (2.46 billion in 2017), and many of them use the channel to share what they are experiencing at any given moment. When news happens, these eyewitnesses can post a description or share a video instantly.
As a result, pressures on security teams are rising considerably in the age of real-time information. Influenced by fast-paced news culture, stakeholders across the enterprise expect security teams to know everything immediately and develop strategic responses faster than ever. Social media also helps security teams learn about critical incidents sooner.
To study these dynamics more closely, Dataminr interviewed corporate security leaders from a range of industries including:
- Financial services
- Industrial manufacturing
These stakeholders represent five firms ranging in size from 2,150 to 300,000 employees and from $260 million to $8.6 billion in annual net income.
