Information at home

Knowing and following your employer’s information-related policies is one thing.  Do your kids follow one at home? Do you?  Does your personal wealth advisor advise you what to do and what not to do?

“Risks of Being Rich on Social Media,” Wall Street Journal, December 21, 2013 B9 http://on.wsj.com/1fveD4N Tells the story of a wealthy kid who posted something on his Facebook page about the family vacation.  The family came home to a ransacked house – the burglars, it would appear, had taken the kid’s posting as an invitation. Or the wealthy kid who posted something on Twitter about Dad’s conversation over dinner about developments at work – How did Dad’s employer feel when that information went public? (Remember the outing of J.K. Rowling’s pseudonym? The wife of one of the author’s lawyers spilled the beans. July 18, 2013 http://bit.ly/1gNqjUk). Who’s problem is information security? Does it matter?

Facebook, Twitter, photos from your/their smartphones (if the GPS stuff is on), networks, etc.  If you’re a potential target, avoid being targeted easily. Electronically or otherwise.
