Security Factoids

Social networking sites account for 25% of the top 10 most active URL categories making them increasingly attractive targets for cybercriminals.

Cybercriminals deceive you into divulging confidential information by exploiting the high level of trust you place in your network of “friends.”

Accidental information leakage through social networking sites may present a greater risk than criminal activity. Nearly 80% of data loss is unintentional.

Web filtering solutions can preserve and support legitimate social networking activities while preventing a victim’s browser from accessing potentially dangerous content and phising scams.

Mobile workers have a far greater need for effective data security because they typically operate in unsecured environments such as airports, hotels or on their home networks.

Cybercriminals know many people use the same login and password on multiple sites, making it easy for them to gain access to social networking accounts.

The end user is the number one security risk for any organization. Educate employees. Help them understand there are no safe zones on the web.

Web filtering provides a way to help neutralize techniques used to trick users into connecting to malware infected sites.
