Cyber Security Quick Tip #1 – Social Media Requests

Thanks for checking out my new series of Cyber Security Quick Tips.  This is Quick Tip #1

Social Media Requests

Cyber criminals often use fake social media profiles in order to befriend you.  Beware of LinkedIn Network and Facebook Friend requests from people you do not know. The goal of the hacker is to get you to leak information about yourself or your employer.  By connecting with you on social media, the third party is given access to a wide range of information that they would not have access to otherwise. Make sure that the person behind the request is real and legitimate before accepting a network or friend request.
