OH I can't believe she posted that!
It is really important for Military Spouses, to practice OPSEC and PERSEC as much as possible. You know my parents and grandparents would always say to me when I was a little girl “Loose Lips, Sinks Ships”. That statement, never really had that much meaning to me as it does now! These two acronyms are really important to your welfare as a family member but also the solider and their units.
Criminals have become so modern and high tech. With all this new technology the computer is a “virtual home” and we need to protect it. There are so many new levels with this new fad of social media, “P-interest, Face book, Stumle-on, Tumblr, blogging, etc. It is really easy to slip up. I have been a blogger since 2003, but blogging didn’t really catch on until 2009. My email account for the nonprofit organization I work with was hacked, so it got me to thinking, wow what is this world is coming too? If these people wanted to they could just have messed me up or my family! Just crazy, everything this week was hacked or changed. I have taken a lot to build up my name, Crystal Cavalier. I even saw a couple of pictures that my friend photo-shopped of me into certain places and it looks SO REAL! You just need to be aware of what you are doing.
