Do you really think it's a good idea to post that?

We know as an Information Security Officer you can’t be there at the moment when someone from your organization is making a decision that could impact the safety and security of your data. They need to be trained to check that link before they click on it, visit a website, or post something on social media.

Cybercriminals are on social media just like the rest of us, and they can do many things to be successful in their nefarious ways. There’s a great article on the Dark Reading website that was written by Ericka Chickowski titled “7 Hidden Social Media Cyber Risks for Enterprises”. https://www.darkreading.com/application-security/7-hidden-social-media-cyber-risks-enterprises?slide=1. This article dives into how cybercriminals are using information posted on social media against the organization that originally posted it and gives some real-world examples. You should start the training process now and share this information with Senior Management, the Marketing team, and those in the spotlight on your organization’s posts.

P.S. On the training front for you and others at your organization, look for our announcement of 10-D Academy training schedule for 2023 coming out next week.
