Social media oversharing puts your customers’ identities and reputations at risk.
In today’s online world, a person’s identity extends beyond personally identifiable information (PII) to include their cyber footprint. 63% of active UK Internet users use social media, and spend on average almost 1.5 hours a day on these sites. Our identities, especially our online personas, are further shaped and formed by the information we share innocently online – like listing your school on your Facebook profile or checking in at your favourite restaurant on a night out. The information shared via social media can be the final puzzle piece hackers need to unlock fraud or identity theft. And, 91% of hiring managers screen job applicants’ social networking profiles during the hiring process. It’s more important than ever to think twice about what you’re sharing online.
CSID’s Social Media Monitoring alerts to instances where a user is sharing personal information via social networking sites – profile info, comments, wall posts and more – which may expose PII and put them at risk. It can also alert to content that was found within their social network profiles that may damage their reputation like foul language, sexual content, and drug and alcohol references. CSID’s Social Media Monitoring service is comprehensive, covering the four main social media networks. Subscribers may connect to the service easily via social media account credentials.
Adding CSID’s Social Media Monitoring to your identity protection service enables users to get more comprehensive protection by securing their online privacy and reputation.
