Course Overview
Hi. I'm Jason Helmeck, an author here at Pluralsight, and welcome to my course, security and social networking. You know, many offices enjoy the benefits of employees, for business reasons, using social networking throughout the course of the business day. Enhanced collaboration with other employees and customers, plus building a strong company culture can lead to a better business. But there are dangerous, and not just for the business, but also for you. While social networking is a chance to share information about yourself and your family, and stay connected with friends and coworkers, it also lets people that you don't know learn about you, locate you, know when you're not in town. This isn't going to end well. So in this course, you will learn how to protect your business and yourself with gaining knowledge of social networking, and some of the attacks that might happen. You'll learn how to identify the attacks, how to stop from falling victim. You will also learn how to be more proactive in avoiding this type of attack, both at your company, and at home. So join me on this journey to start learning more about social networking attacks. Here at Pluralsight, we love learning, and we hope that you do too.
