Check Out Companies to Find out Who You’re Really Dealing With

When you’re online, a little research can save you a lot of money. If you see an ad or an offer that looks good to you, take a moment to check out the company behind it. Type the company or product name into your favorite search engine with terms like “review,” “complaint,” or “scam.” If you find bad reviews, you’ll have to decide if the offer is worth the risk.

When at work use your office PC for business only, avoid using it to do personal activities such as online shopping, banking and checking social media sites. 

Be aware and alert of piggybacking. When in doubt question strangers lurking around the office area and request for their identification then verify it.

Never discuss sensitive work subjects / topics in public areas or spaces for example in an elevator, or even a taxi.

Be Safe on Social Networking Sites

Social networking sites, sometimes referred to as "friend-of-a-friend" sites, build upon the concept of traditional social networks where you are connected to new people through people you already know. The purpose of some networking sites may be purely social, allowing users to establish friendships or romantic relationships, while others may focus on establishing business connections.

Social Networking Sites are increasing common among teens and young adults. The nature of these sites increase various security risks so some necessary precautions need to be taken for protection.
