To say that private things are not for public consumption would seem to be a stating of the obvious. So, why do so many people conduct themselves in such a way that personal information almost unavoidably ends up released to the public? And when something has gone public, why do they not take immediate action.
The Daily Beast spoke with Status Labs’ co-founder Darius Fisher about the subjects of doxxing and document dumping. Fisher infers many people are simply unaware of the steps to take to keep personal online information private. Those who read the article, however, will quickly learn a few ways to keep “classified” material under wraps.
Getting complacent with passwords is one way people’s secret information ends up being broadcasted. Changing up passwords now and then makes it harder to accounts to be compromised. Many people may do right by their passwords, but really fumble when it comes to social media privacy settings. By not keeping privacy levels high, content could end up being indexed by the search engines. Once this occurs, private content is no longer private.
Passwords and social media profiles are familiar topics. The subject of data resource sites and services might be mysterious to the average person. These sites are notorious for collecting names, addresses, and phone numbers and listing them on public websites. Making contact with these sites and demanding the information be removed is strongly suggested. Also suggested is everyone should periodically type their own name in Google.
Contacting Darius Fisher’s company, Status Labs, is one way to do this. Darius Fisher has a tremendous amount of experience with reputation management and digital marketing. He has parlayed that experience into setting up a successful company capable of handling search engine or reputation-related troubles.
Fisher has received impressive awards for his work. PR World and PR Week are two entities that bestowed awards onto him.
