Social media has become an integral part of our lives — we use it to keep in touch, to update others on our lives, to connect. But is it safe?
In today’s hyper-connected world, it seems like almost everything is online. That includes our information. From our names and birthdates to our photos and videos, social media platforms have access to a wealth of personal, identifying information. As high-profile security breaches and privacy scandals permeate the news cycle, one has to wonder: Is my data really being protected — and, if so, how?
To answer this question, Varonis looked at the security blogs of three popular social sites — Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter — to determine how the sites keep personal data safe. Check out their documented security initiatives, from user-facing measures like two-step verification to behind-the-scenes implementations like email encryption, in the full infographic below.
