The information security breach had an impact on the people who are using the LinkedIn website. The company immediately sent messages to the people to ensure that their account should not be wrongly used. It also put a question mark to the information security feature of LinkedIn website (Ablon et al., 2016). Because of the issue of posting of the passwords, the trust of the people on the LinkedIn has begun to reduce. These kinds of incidents also impact the brand image of LinkedIn. If there will be security breach on such a popular website in a consistent manner, it will impact the security feature of the website. The people will begin to avoid using the website. Also the image of the company will be hampered. The website has a huge social impact and it is important to make sure that there is not any such event in the coming future.
One of the most important remedy of this breach is to ensure that the users of the LinkedIn website should keep on changing their passwords on the regular basis. By not changing the password for a long time, there is a security breach. If the passwords will be changed on the regular basis, the hackers will not be able to breach the website. Another method which can be used by LinkedIn is by ensuring that more and more secure encryption policy should be enabled. In the present times, the encryption of the passwords used in the website should be very secure. This is because of the fact that the hackers are gaining more and more expertise every day. Thus, the company needs to be ahead of what actually hackers can do. Another mechanism which can be used for the purpose of security breach is to ensure that there should be a proper measure for the detection of intrusion. This should be deployed by the security offers of LinkedIn.
