Information technology provides the most appropriate communication scope for a business organization. Submitting project proposals or discussing projects between the clients and company exclusively depends on the information technology. Online discussions are held between the clients, managers and team leader and other faculty and staffs which requires the usage of emails, online video chatting, and other social networking sites. Social networking sites like facebook, twitter, gmail, yahoo, skype, other websites, and internet blogs have become very popular as deals can be quickly fixed with the usage of internet resources. The fundamental challenges that the organizations generally faces with regard to protecting organizational assets and information are listed below:

• Usernames and passwords of confidential accounts of the organizations are at more risks to be hacked.
