The Internet of Things (IoT): Social Media Safety

With well over 2 Billion active users worldwide, social media provides easy and immediate access to family and friends around the globe. With the click of a button we can interact daily and keep up with events from the mundane to the extraordinary.

What people often fail to realize is that our social media activities extend far beyond their circle of friends. Social engineering cybercriminals can often get your personal information with just a few data points, so the less you share publicly, the better. For example, if you post your pet’s name or reveal your mother’s maiden name, you might expose the answers to two common security questions.

Here's how you can protect yourself and your data.

  • Check and update privacy settings on all social media accounts

  • Think before you post

  • Keep personal information personal

  • Know and manage your connections

  • Monitor connection's posts about you
