A month ago, we had shared a post about WhatsApp new privacy policy that was part one indeed. Will you stop using it by 15 May 2021?

Practically, it’s about privacy threat, one of the security threats, which include anti-privacy, virus and hacking. Since there is NO such “security threat free” system in the world while most of the security solutions are passive rather than proactive. So, how to tackle this privacy threat proactively? Sadly, not much can be done technically but two magic words, AWARENESS and TRAINING, which are very often ignored. They are interactive, cyclic and interrelated.

The security awareness training course efficiently trains employees or individuals to recognize and avoid security risks. It raises the security awareness among all employees. The positive result will not only benefit to the organization but also to individuals. Individual’s awareness will change his/her behavior for tackling all threats, including anti-privacy policy. Let’s build a safer cyber environment.

一個月前,我們分享了有關 WhatsApp新私隱條款相關的帖文,這篇是第二回。你會否在今年5月15日前停用它?

實際上,WhatsApp 是次的改動,可以歸類為”反私隱” 或”私隱威脅”,是安全威脅的一種。(另外兩種是病毒和黑客攻擊。)

世上是沒有“零安全威脅”的系統,同時大多數安全(保安)解決方案都是被動式而不是主動式的。 那麼,如何主動地應對這種私隱威脅呢? 可悲的是,技術上可以做的實在不多。幸而“安全意識”和“培訓” (可惜它們常被忽略)能另闢蹊徑,提供了有效的應對方案。兩者是循環互動而互為關係的。

安全意識培訓課程有效地培訓員工或個人去識別和避免安全風險。 它提高了所有員工的安全意識。 這正向結果不僅有益於整個機構,對個人亦大有禆益。個人的安全意識將改變其應對各種威脅(包括私隱威脅方面的政策)的行為。 讓我們一起建立一個更安全的網絡環境吧。
