Be careful what you post on-line . . . it can hang around forever!
Of course our acceptable use policy prohibits us from posting information about the bank or bank business on our own social media sites like Facebook, Youtube, etc. But we should also be careful about ANY information we put on these sites.
Even information about ourselves.
When we post on-line, whether it be our own LinkedIn account or a comment to a blog post on myowninterests.com, we should ask ourselves one simple question:
Who will be searching for our name on the Internet?
The answer could be any number of people. Hopefully our friends and family members. Maybe even our neighbors and our children’s teachers. But we should add “bad guys” to that list, and probably sales people and maybe home buyers or sellers, that sort of thing. And potential future employers.
The best thing to do is always keep in mind that anything we put on-line could be read by a future employer. Taking that approach will keep us from posting something that we live to regret!

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.
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.
