Social Media can be safe, if YOU choose to learn safe practices!
I was going to write this long article about how no amount of my warnings would safeguard this bank without the active participation of you, the user of our information assets! I wanted the article to come to some charismatic conclusion that would inspire each and every one of you to pay as close attention to all the dangers of technology as I do. Of course, I do it because of my job. But you need to do it because of the value of the information you protect. It’s what we promise to our customers now.
Yes, I wanted to write an article that, in my minds eye, could cause goose bumps to crop up on your arms as you read it, and cause just a single tear of inspiration to roll down your face as you finished it. I was envisioning the entire office to come by my cubicle one person at a time, high-fiving me and saying “I finally get it.”
Yes . . . . that was what I wanted to do.
Instead, I decided “aw heck, I can’t write that good.” Instead, I decided to let somebody else do it. Instead, I have collected a few links you might want to check out:
- Is Social Media Safe?
- Regaining Control of Your Facebook Privacy
- The Dark Side!
- Why Google Spies on YOU
- The Underground Economy
- Build Your Own Hack Attack for $2753
If you think the above links are meant to scare you . . . .

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.
