    The important thing is to do what you can in advance to protect yourself or company as much as possible. Failure to do so will potentially leave the SMB sector with significant data ownership related legal issues. To date legal cases involving disputes between employees and employers over who owns that data have tended to favour the employer, companies need to get to a point where they are managing employee behaviour at the individual level.

    The law is unclear, and in fact even lawyers have expressed doubts about exactly how laws should be interpreted when social media is involved. What certainly is safe, and a very good idea, is to have a strong and clear social media policy in place that addresses issues of company security and makes it clear that employees should not post any confidential company information. This is the kind of social media policy that will certainly hold up in any court of law.

    On the WebTitan website we provide a Template Web Usage Policy (http://www.webtitan.com/infographics-guides/company-internet-usage-policy-808) , it‘s very important that you edit the document to suit your organisation, adding your specific company policy details and using crystal clear language.
