5. Oversharing on social media
Nowadays, it’s quite normal for people to share everything on social media. However, as the saying goes, less is more! This is a good rule of thumb to keep in mind every time you want to post something—at least from a cybersecurity perspective. Hackers are always scouring social platforms, just waiting for you to reveal information that might be part of your password.
“Phishing and spear phishing attacks use social media-derived information to make their attacks more effective,” says Michael Kapono, digital manager at Tetra Defense. Just try not to post everything on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.
