To whom do you di­vulge your pri­vate de­tails?

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - PERSONALFINANCE -

Most of us have re­ceived an email or SMS in­duc­ing us to part with per­sonal in­for­ma­tion. Known as “phish­ing” at­tacks, these com­mu­ni­ca­tions look au­then­tic and can eas­ily con­fuse you. But how do fraud­sters get their hands on your email ad­dress or cell­phone num­ber in the first place?

At the next meet­ing of the Ac­sis/Per­sonal Fi­nance Fi­nan­cial Plan­ning Club, Anna Col­lard, founder of Pop­corn Train­ing, which pro­motes in­for­ma­tion se­cu­rity aware­ness and train­ing, will ex­plain what you should know when giv­ing out your per­sonal de­tails and the im­pli­ca­tions of the soon-tobe en­acted Pro­tec­tion of Per­sonal In­for­ma­tion Bill.

The pre­sen­ta­tion will take place at the Bel­mont Square Con­fer­ence Cen­tre, in Bel­mont Road, Ron­de­bosch on November 19 at 5.30pm for 6pm. For de­tails or to book, call Nomhle Som­daka on 0860 101 226, email info@fp­club.co.za, or visit the club’s web­site: www.fp­club.co.za
