OPSEC For social media and travelers

Social Networking Sites like Facebook and Twitter, are great ways to connect with people, share information, and market products and services. However, these sites can also provide adversaries, such as terrorists, spies and criminals, with the critical information they need to disrupt your mission and harm you, your co-workers, or even your family members.  The more information adversaries can obtain, the more opportunities they have to cause damage at your expense.  Practicing good operations security  will minimize the risks that come from participating in SNSs, and help you to recognize and protect your critical information..
