FACEBOOK EXPOSED MORE THAN 50 MILLION USERS TO CAMBRIDGE ANALYTICA
As Facebook faces the data privacy scandal involving the consulting firm, Cambridge Analytica, where they managed to access the records of more than 50 million users, it is time for you to take a giant leap towards protecting your information and review what you are sharing online.
You might think you have your Facebook privacy settings under control but privacy controls are constantly changing. When you post a photo of a family vacation, do you know who can see it? Are you aware of the information Facebook applications are gathering from you?
Having your personal information public in social media might expose you to potential cyber threats.Fortunately, there are several ways you can restrict the access so that your information goes just to the people you want.
BrandProtect has developed a series of free, monthly Executive Threat Briefs focused on social media risk. The briefs deal with online situations that you and your people encounter every day, and the simple steps you can take to be better protected from common social media dangers. You can use this piece internally and externally for educating your staff (and alerting their families) on social media risk.
