By Nate Lord,
Digital Guardian, 8 October 2015.

October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month, and this week's theme is Creating a Culture of Cybersecurity at Work. In celebration of the month and this week's theme, we've released an infographic on the security risks inherent to oversharing on social media - particularly for companies and their employees.

While many of the flashier headlines of today may tell of advanced malware and sophisticated attacks, social media remains an unspoken favourite tool for cyber criminals. By harvesting the information that is available across various social media platforms, attackers can develop highly targeted - and highly effective - campaigns that gain victims' trust and exploit emotions to steal sensitive information or establish entry points for future attacks. By learning the risks of oversharing and following some best practices for social media security, you can better protect your digital identity and your company's sensitive information without hampering your social experience.
