Top EU security agency calls for policing of social network

[IDG] Europe’s top Internet security agency, ENISA, called Tuesday for new legislation to police social networking sites such as Facebook and MySpace.”Social networking sites are very useful social tools but we must make recommendations for how to better protect people from the risks these sites create,” said Andreas Pirotti, executive director of ENISA (European Network and Information Security Agency).

Social networking sites need more regulation in order to ensure that they won’t pose major security risks to users, according to the European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA). The agency issued a preliminary version of its General Report covering online security this morning, pointing out that it views social networks as a “positive social phenomenon” that are not without their own set of security problems, and the organization has a set of recommendations meant to protect users online.
