Social media

Sharing aspects of our personal and professional lives

Facebook friend or foe?

Social media is all about sharing aspects of our personal and professional lives. So it can be a rich source of sensitive data for cyber criminals.

Here are a few simple tips to stay safe when using social media:

  • Avoid posting or including in your public profile information such as your date of birth, home address, contact details, when you’re going on holiday, and other personal details that may be used for identity theft or fraud.
  • Only add people to your network that you know or have met and use privacy controls to limit who can see what.
