My personal life is at the opposite end to the working life. I have a small property North of Melbourne with lots of animals a few kids and wife, I have been working in IT for over 15 years and in 2013 started IT System Solutions. My focus with IT is to support small to medium sized businesses who need reliable IT support and flexible solutions. We especially enjoy working with start-ups in helping them navigate the technology they need.

See how you go.

I have a bit of experience in this area as I worked in education and it was a requirement to have both student and staff protected and the school protected from their activities.  So as an example one policy would ensure that all staff Facebook profiles met a minimum security level so that students would not be able to access personal details etc.

Depending on the size of the organisation you are helping there are also products that provide these solutions, but mostly aimed at the small to medium enterprise.
