INTERNET SAFETY PROTECTING YOUR ONLINE SECURITY The Internet makes it easier than ever to stay connected with your family members especially during a deployment. While it may seem obvious that you shouldn't publicly offer up information about your family member's unit, location or deployment and return dates, sometimes the line between public and private information becomes clouded on social media sites, like Facebook and Twitter or your personal blog. Remember, while the world is full of honest people, anyone can unknowingly compromise your personal security or the security of the military community through stray pieces of information. HELPFUL WEBSITES ABOUT INTERNET SAFETY The following are some helpful websites to inform you about internet safety: • www.getcybersafe.gc.ca/index-eng.aspx • www.cnet.com/how-to/remove-delete-yourself-from-the-internet/ • www.lifehacker.com • www.us-cert.gov • www.OnGuardOnline.gov • www.ic3.gov • www.dhs.gov • www.ftc.gov • www.fbi.gov
