Social media

RULE: Social media

Social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, etc. are generally not secure.

  • You may only share information on social media that can also be shared on AU's public websites. This means information that can be classified as public.

TIP: Take great care of your information and data on social media

IT criminals look for entrances to the vital IT systems of organisations, and they often use social media to gain access. For instance, they gain access when people share information that can be misused.

Therefore, consider carefully what information you share on social media about yourself and about AU.

TIP: Activate two-step authentication on social media

Social media are often exposed to hacker attacks, and if IT criminals get access, they can steal sensitive personal data.

  • Activate two-step authentication on all your social media. Two-step authentication is an extra layer of security designed to ensure that you are the only person who can get access, even if others know your password.
