Public Notice: Social media and cyber security safety tips for personnel and families
Internet-based social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter have created a revolution in social connectivity. However, they also have the ability to expose personal and private information, leaving users vulnerable to a number of potential threats including scams, identity theft, and social targeting from individuals or groups intending to do harm.
Protect you and your family - keep your personal information safe from those who could use it to target you for their own purposes. Review the FBI's Parent's Guide to Internet Safety and their Social Media Smart Cards for properly configuring your account privacy and security settings on some of the more popular social networking sites.
