Hackers will undertake research into individuals at an organisation using the web and social media sites, once their victim is selected they will compromise their corporate account, and then worm their way into the core of the company where the most critical and valuable information lies. Essentially wreaking havoc on the organisation – affecting its reputation, share price, and integrity.
