Social Media Strikes

Question: 
I had a question regarding our website. We were wondering if we should have "Officer's" names on the website for each branch. I've kind of struggled with this one because they've been on there a long time and it seems most other banks have some staff on their sites, but is that opening us up to risks?
Answer: 

Basically, if a person accepts a managerial position, they are placing themselves in the public realm. Meaning if someone uses their identity to conduct social engineering or try to kidnap or control the person they should be trained on awareness. I don't like to see Board of Directors pictures or names online as they are not trained in the problem emerging from this advertising. Normally they want their names online they just don't believe someone might kidnap them to gain access to the bank. As far as non-management people with the exception of loan officers there is no reason to list them on your website.
