I read through this article by Dark Reading and thought it was a rather up in your face and common sense. I also felt it was worth sharing with anyone who was interested. It references company data, but is just as valid for personal data. In this day and age where we are part if so many groups and clubs with our data being shared by us…we become our own worst enemy. Best way to see what is out there about us is to Google ourselves, personally I prefer Startpage (https://www.startpage.com/) as it is third party confirmed security for privacy and they yield the Google results without recording your IP address.
Just some food for thought.
