Why social networking sites increased security due to s.e. attack

  1. 1. Huda Shaikh-42Sheeba Siddiqui-53
  2. 2.  Expanding Market Research Personal Touch Improve Your Reputation Low-Cost Marketing And much more….
  3. 3. A social engineering attack is one in which the intended victim is somehow tricked into doing the attackers bidding. Social engineering attacks are also often used to trick users into infecting their own systems – "Social networking sites are goldmines of information, and a social engineers dream. You dont even have to go dumpster diving anymore,"
  4. 4.  Worms
  5. 5. A lack of security on social networking sites causes problems for business. Identity Theft Illegitimate third-party applications. False connection requests.
  6. 6.  Registering an Account Use a strong password different from the passwords you use to access other sites. If you are asked to provide security questions, use information that others would not know about you. Consider not using your real name, especially your last name. Be aware that this may violate the terms of service of some social networks.
  7. 7. Review the privacy policy and terms of service before signing up for an account.Be sure to keep strong antivirus and spyware protection on your computer Provide only information that is necessary or that you feel comfortable providing. Remember, you can always provide more information to a social network, but you can’t always remove information once it’s been posted.
  8. 8.  Become familiar with the privacy settings available on any social network you use. Don’t share your birthday, age, or place of birth. This information could be useful to identity thieves and to data mining companies. Be very cautious of pop-up windows, especially any that state your security software is out of date or that security threats and/or viruses have been detected on your computer.
  9. 9. “The world is getting closer everyday and everyone wants to be connected and social networking helps in that ….But The real defense is to learn how not to fall victim to social engineering.”
