Businesses with a wireless communications network in place could find their systems under threat due to malware and social networking attacks.
Sebastian Zabala, country manager for the UK and Sweden at Panda Security, says threats arising from social media sites could become relatively sophisticated.
For instance, he suggests that human attackers can monitor people's profiles, determine what type of contact they are most responsive to and then approach them accordingly.
This could be through an interest group such as a shared hobby, making any new contact on sites like Facebook into a potential threat.
Meanwhile, businesses are advised to put in place processes to scan information sent over wired or wireless communications networks for evidence of malware.
Protecting the system through "technical applications" including malware scanners, while imposing sensible restrictions on social networking activity, can combine to make sure that the threat of any serious infringement on security is minimised, Mr Zabala concludes.
