Everyone is having their account on social media platforms for the public interactions. The social media platforms can cause damage sometimes if you are not attentive to your security. Surveys say that nearly one out of five Facebook accounts are hacked. Sometimes, it’s not just our mates playing harmless pranks either, with a significant proportion of respondents saying they’d had abusive messages, hoaxes, scams, or other offensive material posted from their account without their knowledge. The vendor-neutral CISSP certification is the ideal credential for those with proven deep technical and managerial competence, skills, experience, and credibility to design, engineer, implement, and manage their overall information security program to protect organizations from growing sophisticated attacks.
