Investigators need to understand the dark side of information sharing and the potential risks it brings to victims, witnesses, and investigators. To avoid potentially dangerous individuals, first responders, security professionals, and intelligence officers choose to keep their families and homes off the grid. Employees and agencies are at greater risk now more than ever because fraudulent predators are taking advantage of those unfamiliar with working from home. Hacking, phishing, and scamming are on the rise, and the threats are expected to increase. Helping the public and high-risk targets protect their personally identifiable information is a priority during these uncertain times. Opting out of online personal data aggregates and managing the technology devices inside your home can reduce the risk to you and your family. This webinar is meant to help facilitate your understanding of the dark side of information sharing and how to protect your, your family's, and the high-risk targets' personal privacy in a very open online world. There is no one solution, no one vendor, that has all the answers. Knowledge from this session will enable you to begin to remove, obstruct, or obscure the open source information that leaves you, your family, and high-risk targets vulnerable online.
