Information Security: October Is Cybersecurity Month – Maintaining Online Privacy

In addition to the laws that govern private data and information, we all have a personal privacy threshold for information about ourselves. Here are some tips to help you continue to think about your own privacy.

  • Privacy settings: You can control privacy settings using device settings and in-app settings. Review these regularly.
  • When available, turn on two-step verification (also called multi-factor identification); most banks already have this.
  • Posting photos from your vacation is fun as long as you remember that the metadata in your photos can reveal where you live, work, vacation, and so on. Read this article from Consumer Reports on how hidden "Exif" data exposes your personal information.
  • It's fun to take social media quizzes to find out what your favorite movie says about your personality. But before you take a quiz like this, think: Do you want your personal details from your social media account shared or sold to others?

Stay safe.
