Nowadays, we all are intertwined with technology at one or another point in our daily lives. Although the convenience it provides increases day by day, it also brings out the danger when technology is not being used with caution.
Every day millions of people share their personal data on their websites and social media accounts. What is this personal data? Any information about you is your personal data. Don't think of your first name and surname immediately, because there are maybe one person, maybe ten, maybe hundreds of people with the same name and surname as you. As to explain in detail, they must be distinctive so that they can be called your personal data. In other words, if your ID number, phone number or photo is added to your name and surname, then they will be distinguished and is accepted as your personal data. At the same time, your personal data is your physical, social and economic characteristics that make you identifiable. In fact, these data, which we underestimate, can cause huge losses when they are violated. A data breach means that hackers infiltrate a data source and pass sensitive information to third parties.
Cyber hijacker attack the devices in their own way and capture the data. Most of the time, they don't even have to work hard for it, because the information you share with your consent in your social media accounts is already available to many people. This personal information may be your financial information or your location, or sometimes your shopping habits, eating preferences, or your relationship status. This data can be used by malicious people to harm you or the people around you, and eventually make your life more difficult. In fact, you never imagined it when you first wrote your information into your social media account, right? Moreover, some of the social media platforms you use have already admitted that they have violated our data privacy in recent years. According to a survey of a security-software company called Kaspersky last month, in Turkey every 4 people out of 10 expressed their willingness to give up their social media accounts for data security of a lifetime.
