Pollino has blogged about social media policies and usage for years now, and has just compiled a series of best practices he now shares throughout his institution.

In a video interview at Information Security Media Group's recent San Francisco Fraud and Breach Prevention Summit, Pollino discusses:

  • Social media risks;
  • What to address beyond authentication and permissions;
  • How to roll out and monitor an enterprisewide social media policy.

Before joining Bank of the West in 2011 as senior vice president and enterprise fraud prevention officer, Pollino served as vice president of online risk strategy and analytics at Wells Fargo. He also held managerial positions at Washington Mutual and Charles Schwab.
