SecureMySocial Logo


New York, NY - May 23, 2018 - SecureMySocial, a leading provider of social media security software, is proud to announce that it has been named to the 2018 Cybersecurity 500 list, a global compilation of the 500 leading companies that provide cybersecurity solutions and services.

The Cybersecurity 500 includes a wide range of prestigious firms, ranging from the largest and most recognizable brands in the industry, to venture-backed emerging players, to small startups with potentially game-changing technologies, to solution providers poised for growth around productized or vertically focused services. The list was created by, and is maintained by, Cybersecurity Ventures, after research that includes continuously looking at thousands of companies, soliciting feedback from CISOs, IT security practitioners, and service providers, and analyzing hundreds of cybersecurity events and news sources. The 2018 Cybersecurity 500 roster was announced at the Cyber Investing Summit in New York last week.


SecureMySocial offers technology that protects businesses and their employees from the risks of inappropriate social media usage. Its multi-patented system warns users of social media in real time if they are making posts that could harm themselves or their employers, even if such posts are made from home or from mobile devices. It can help companies comply with GDPR, as well as stop offensive posts, data leaks, and the sharing of fake news. SecureMySocial can even auto-delete problematic posts if so authorized. By offering SecureMySocial to employees, businesses may reduce their exposure to data leaks, spear phishing, bad publicity, human resource issues, lawsuits, and regulatory fines.


“CISOs and IT Security professionals at business of all sizes can no longer ignore the fact that criminals are exploiting social media as an attack surface and as a resource from which to gather information to be used in social engineering attacks,” said Steve Morgan, founder and Editor-In-Chief at Cybersecurity Ventures. “SecureMySocial was an early player in the space, and now has a patented, easy-to-use platform that protects enterprises from data leaks, reputational harm, regulatory and legal problems, and other issues that result from employee use – and misuse – of social media. Information security executives should put SecureMySocial on their short list of solutions to look at in this burgeoning category addressing a growing risk,” added Morgan.

“We are delighted to, for the third-year-in-a row, be recognized as one on the leading cybersecurity firms globally,” said Joseph Steinberg, CEO of SecureMySocial. “SecureMySocial’s multi-patented, game changing technology enables firms to leverage the true power of social media – including having their employees serve as de-facto brand ambassadors – while protecting both businesses and their employees against all sorts of blunders. In addition to protecting against data leaks, reconnaissance done by criminals for the purpose of crafting spear phishing emails, GDPR and HIPAA violations, and all sorts of other information-security risks, SecureMySocial can also help stop people from sharing fake news, making career-threatening tweets, and posting all sorts of other content that can damage their personal brands and those of their employers.

Cybercriminals increasingly scan social media – sometimes with automated tools – to find information that can be used against companies and their employees; attackers then leverage the information that they find to deliver ransomware.
