Let's equip our users so they're actually our strongest line of defense.
Indeed today users are a vulnerable attack vector and a weak link but, more education is not the answer. It's important, but rather than burdening users with "thou shall not" and security that creates ridiculous friction, infosec leaders can take a more reliable and user friendly approach. Modern tools that leverage including mobile, biometrics and analytics protect users while being virtually transparently so they can focus on business rather than rules. Identity based security can transform your uses from the weakest link into the strongest line of defense.

Echoing the Sentiment
In-line with the message of the article. Limit the scope. If the risk vector is social media restrict social media outlets via web security to only allow those with specific business need to access it (HR, Marketing, potentially ELT) Then set up the appropriate security training for those groups. By limiting the pool to that subset you can drastically cut down onthe potential risk that Social Media can have on the organization.
