WSPH Director/Owner Sonnie Santos, interview at GMA 7’s Reporters Notebook, re: online crimes and cyber wellness
A News report has confirmed that with more people engrossed in social computing, more crimes and complaints involving misuse and abuse are also accounted.
The CIDG said it received 25 complaints involving the use of Facebook between January 1 and June 14 this year. In comparison, the agency received 26 cases involving Facebook for the entire year of 2010. Of the cases involving Facebook this year, 6 were estafa; 6 were libel; 3 each for harassment and hacking; 5 cases of identity theft and fake accounts; and 2 cases of pornography.
Aside from the personal consequences to the user, the company can be affected indirectly. Among many others, productivity lost, unnecessary rise on cost of hiring and training, confidential data being compromised, positive employee online branding/reputation and malware infection. Even if access to internet and social media is blocked.
Therefore, starting a cyber wellness program is not only timely but a necessary program to engage employees.

Whether access of social web is blocked or not in the workplace, employees online behavior can affect employer in any of the following
- Tainted employer online branding/reputation
- Smart employees are also cross checking companies by reading the rants of those currently employed by the company on social networking sites
- Some customers do check not only feedbacks on the product/service experience, but also how they perceive employer treatment of employees and this may affect buying behavior towards the brand
- Loss of productivity
- Employee online behavior can lead to prolong absence as a result of a crime [either as perpetuator or a victim], company discipline, or embarrassment that can lead to resignation.
- In all of these, there will be man hour lost
