The only thing you should use your company’s workstation or PC for is…work! Never mix personal web surfing and social media with company devices. If you want to check your Hotmail account or Facebook page, do it during your lunch break and on your personal device.

Over 100,000 Facebook accounts are hacked every day. If you’re using a company device to access a compromised account, you’re opening up a door to a hacker who can then get into your company’s network via your e-mail or PC. Bottom line: don’t use company PCs, devices, phones or Internet for personal use.

One final note: make sure you set up multifactor authentication on your personal accounts. This will help reduce the chance of an attacker breaking into your social media account or your personal e-mail and using it to phish other people in your organization.
