Where You’ll Get Hacked [infographic]

People complain that they want privacy, and then they put all their information up on Facebook. Thus, hacking is ultra-easy. I have seen teenagers post pictures of their first credit card, then a month later their new college student I.D. These kids are so excited to have signs of growing up, but as we grow up our lives need to be more private to guard from hackers. Now I am a culprit of being very relaxed about my online privacy, meaning, I have the same password for multiple sites, I use my high school name as my clue, and the name of my high school is on Facebook somewhere. We may not worry about identity theft as much as physical property theft because it isn’t as scary and face to face as an actual robbery, but it is a digital robbery, identity theft can be life damaging. 

According to the  Global Security Report, cyber-security threats are increasing as quickly as we can implement measures against them. Hackers have lots of different ways to steal your private data and information. And the main reason why hackers go after your personal information is identity theft! Over the past year, there have been roughly 12.6 million victims of identity theft – or, to put it into perspective, one victim every three seconds.  No matter how safe you think you’re being online, chances are you’re making at least a few mistakes that compromise the integrity of your personal information.
