Importance of Privacy

Friday, January 04, 2013
It seems over the past year, privacy concerns have risen to the point of overhauling many major websites’ privacy policy. One of those websites which received the biggest criticism over their policy is Facebook. Recently, Randi Zuckerberg, sister of Mark Zuckerberg posted a photo on Facebook meant to be private. However, due to the recent changes made to the settings within Facebook and an unfortunate tagging event, that photo went public. Now, Randi is placing the blame on the general public rather than the privacy settings of Facebook or even herself. But that’s not the point of this particular post.

The real question is, how seriously do you take your online privacy and do you believe there should be stricter rules in place? Websites like Facebook and Twitter allow you to privatize your pictures and posts, but is it enough? Sometimes friends of friends can see those pictures and before you know it, the photo is out in the public for everyone to see. Should it be left up to the person posting, the friends, or the website to lock down security? Most may say that it should be up to the person posting to keep their information private. But what if the company responsible for holding the information is changing their policy without much notice? Then is it their fault?

How do you feel on the privacy situation? What precautions do you take to keep your information on the internet within your grasps and not everyone else? Do you believe the responsibility should be on the company, or yourself? Let us know what you think! Don't be the victim of an information security, email security, or network security breach.
