12 days of security

Do you ever talk to the other generations around you to determine their level of paranoia and cyber understanding?  Too often I see younger generations and older generations having different criteria for trusting web sites or emails than I do.  Often when I question the person I find that they often don’t realize the settings on their social media gives them the ability to control who sees their posts.  I will often “google” a person and find that their social media postings give much too much information about what they do, where they go and the people they are with.

Sit down with both your children and your parents and show them how their social profile looks to someone else.  Showcase to them that social media can often be used in public searches to determine if someone is worthy for a job or meets the criteria for an organization.

Take the time to teach others about privacy and remind others that what is posted online will last for a lifetime.
