Investigators need to understand the dark side of information sharing and the
potential risks it brings to victims, witnesses, and investigators. To avoid
potentially dangerous individuals, first responders, security professionals, and
intelligence officers choose to keep their families and homes off the grid.
Employees and agencies are at greater risk now more than ever because fraudulent
predators are taking advantage of those unfamiliar with working from home.
Hacking, phishing, and scamming are on the rise, and the threats are expected to
increase. Helping the public and high-risk targets protect their personally
identifiable information is a priority during these uncertain times. Opting out
of online personal data aggregates and managing the technology devices inside
your home can reduce the risk to you and your family. This webinar is meant
to help facilitate your understanding of the dark side of information sharing
and how to protect your, your family’s, and the high-risk targets’ personal
privacy in a very open online world. There is no one solution, no one vendor,
that has all the answers. Knowledge from this session will enable you to begin
to remove, obstruct, or obscure the open source information that leaves you,
your family, and high-risk targets vulnerable online.
• Understand the dark side of information sharing.
• Identify private lives and public information available through
websites, social networks, and “Invisible Web” sources.
• Discover ways
to protect your privacy by implementing basic security practice online, at home, and on social media.
