My organisation is concerned about privacy and will only allow the use of Yammer if there is a way to prevent the external sharing of content. The appeal of Yammer is that it seems be an entirely closed network, but the only exception I can see is in media attachments to posts with I can share to e.g. WhatsApp. How can this type of sharing be prevented?

@Archie13 If I am reading this correctly the issue is attached files/image to posts? As noted elsewhere, you can disable Files in Yammer.
Does you company prevent people from emailing outside your company with attachments? Have you head a series of incidents where internal people shared externally?

HI @Kevin Crossman Thanks for your post.
It may be that I am trying to achieve the impossible here but...
I wish to encourage company people to share information internally. This will include photo's of activities conducted with customers (external people) and anonymised x-ray images of patients. This is perfectly legitimate to do.
However there is a risk that they may do so without permission, or may post something not anonymised. That is also fine, as long as it stays internal and we remove the offending material.
What the company wants though, is to prevent the possibility of this stuff being posted by one individual and then being shared externally by another.
Can it made so that it is one way travel into the Yammersphere? Or another way of putting it, once it is posted it is locked into place? Will disabling files in Yammer also disable the ability to post them in the first place?
I know this doesn't prevent screen grabbing, but we are comfortable with that.

@Archie13 The only way to "prevent" people from doing the wrong thing with posted files in Yammer (or in SharePoint, OneDrive, Teams, Google Drive, Dropbox, etc.) is to prevent files from being posted in the first place.
