From novice hackers to complex cybercriminal networks, see how attackers build detailed profiles of their social engineering attack targets.
Privacy vs Security is a conundrum. In most cases, to achieve privacy means implementing tools that prevent or preclude security. To achieve security and protection against threats, the trade off for the user is sacrificing privacy. By its very nature, privacy entails eliminating the ability for a user’s web surfing, email, texting, social media and app activity to be monitored. Security requires such activities to be monitored and inspected to provide protection against cyber threats.
A user won’t be able to have both complete privacy and complete security, so when it comes to choosing between privacy vs security, they must decide which compromises they are willing to make. Will they sacrifice some privacy in exchange for security? Or, will they exchange the risk of cyber threats, viruses, and ransomware for better privacy?

We are constantly reminded of the growing number of privacy concerns from the use of Information and Communications Technology (ICT). Some are quick to blame governments or commercial entities when our personal information is compromised. Very few stop to think whether or not the blame should be pointed at ourselves. To what extent are we as end-users responsible for facilitating our own personal privacy?
