SECURITY AWARENESS TIP OF THE WEEK
If youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re traveling this summer you might want to think before you post your travel itineraryÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ Sometimes we inadvertently give the Ã¢â‚¬Å“bad guysÃ¢â‚¬Â an open invitation to steal. Before you post anything about where youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re going and how long youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be gone, remember that the information might be viewed by someone other than your friends and with todayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s technology itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not that difficult to figure out where you live.
