Cybersecurity Awareness Month Weekly Tip: Social Media Safety

Each week during Cybersecurity Awareness Month, we’re going to be sharing in-depth weekly cybersecurity tips from our informative evangelists to help your users make smarter security decisions and build your cybersecurity fortress from anywhere!

As a security professional for over 20 years, we knew security awareness advocate Javvad Malik would be fit for the job to explain the next weekly cybersecurity tip. Javvad is no stranger to social media, with a YouTube channel, a popular podcast, a blog, and popular social media accounts. That is why this week's tips are focused on Social Media Safety. 

First of all, it is more important than ever to be careful of anything that you post on social media. The internet is a treasure trove of personal information that can be used against you. Carefully crafted  phishing emails can be targeted to you just by seeing what's publicly available on your Facebook profile. 

Make sure you consistently reset your passwords on any of your social media accounts. Do not share your logins to your social media accounts with anyone. In short, just be mindful about what you post, and who you share anything with. 

Check out this helpful video from Javvad as he explains his top social media tips in further detail:
