In this issue: Facebook Survey Scam | Protecting your Privacy on Social Networking Sites | Understanding Social Engineering

We share more and more personal details about ourselves online. Are you sharing too much private information? And, the even bigger question: is what you share publically putting your privacy and security at risk? In this issue, we take a closer look at how your online behavior may be affecting your privacy, and the steps you should be taking to stay secure on social networking sites, like Facebook and Twitter.

Words to live by? If you wouldn't give a stranger the information, you probably shouldn't be posting it online.

Best regards,
