Avoid Danger in Cyberspace!

By Dan Hadaway | Sunday, January 31, 2010 - Leave a Comment

Three points to remember!

Let’s start 2010 with a Japanese Proverb:

“The reputation of thousand years may be determined by the conduct of one hour.”

This was obviously written long before the Information Age, because nowadays our reputation can be destroyed by just a few minutes of a wrong move.

Being aware of the dangers of cyberspace really can make or break us, so here are three points to ALWAYS remember:

1) Technology can be dangerous.

2) The way we USE technology can either strengthen us or make us vulnerable.

3) The Acceptable Use Policy teaches us the way we should use technology.

It’s that simple!

Infotex Team

Intended Use:

The purpose of Vigilize is to respond to ISO’s complaints that users never read ISO’s “ongoing security awareness training reminders.”  Our tweets are designed to be copied into the subject line of your awareness reminder, with the language on these pages put into the body.  The goal is that the user will have to read the subject line to know to delete the message, and if they understand the subject line the reminder is communicated.  If not, they will go into the message and read the reminder.

We are also using Vigilize to tweet links to articles and sites we think will help in your overall awareness program at levels beyond the user-level.  Some may be for management, some for the board, some for your customers, and some for the technical staff.  It’s entirely up to you!

The Vigilize Tweets are just starting points . . . don’t be afraid to edit them to fit your own unique needs!

Feel free to use Vigilize in your own Security Awareness Program.  Let us know if you have any ideas, suggested tweets, or ways to improve this FREE service.
