Staying Safe Online is Not a Spectator Sport

Staying Safe Online is Not a Spectator Sport

As our lives further online, are we being lulled into a sense of false security?

The verdict of the recent Forbes symposium 20 Tech Pros Share Red Flags to Watch For Before Sharing Personal Data—which includes a contribution from OZ Chief Solutions Officer and Forbes Technology Council member Emmanuel Ramos—is a definitive, “Yes.”

The good news, however, is that with proactive habits and policies, it does not have to be this way.

Here is what Ramos had to say:

“There are many red flags to watch for. If a website lacks a secure connection—the address doesn’t begin with https:// —it’s a sign that the company may not prioritize data security. Also, watch for an unusual URL, and be cautious if the company’s website URL doesn’t match its official brand name. Further, always be wary of requests for sensitive information via email; legitimate companies typically won’t ask for sensitive data, such as your Social Security number, via email.”
