Beware of Phishing Twitter Scam

Do keep your eyes open for a phishing scam that seems to be going about at the moment.

Initially it appears that you receive an email seemingly from one of the people you follow on Twitter. The message can vary but it is something that suggests you have been tagged in a Facebook video or message, and there is a link for you to follow - like that shown here:Beware of Twitter Phishing Scam

Once the link is followed it takes you to a Facebook App which asks you for your Twitter sign in information (like the one above)....DO NOT enter your sign in information as this is possibly a scam and phishing exercise.

If you are concerned that you are being targeted, or your own Twitter Account has been hijacked in a similar phishing exercise, the best action is to change your Twitter password.

If you are no longer able to access your Twitter account as it has been compromised, then you can contact Twitter for assistance this may be a useful article to read:

Free Cookie Audits and Privacy Notice Reviews

In response to the new EU Regulations relating to the use of cookies on European websites we are offering a free cookie audit, and advice to all our existing customers. For most of our clients the implications of the the new EU Regulations are limited to the continued use of Google Analytics and we can offer advice and suggestions.

In their guidelines, the Information Commissioners' Office (ICO) has stated that in relation to cookies used for analytical purposes:

We have, however, developed an alternative method of collecting website traffic data that does not use cookies and does not infringe visitor privacy - please ask for details.

A small percentage of our customers have websites with other types of cookies and we can discuss solutions and offer advice, so please get in touch as soon as possible.

We are also offering to review our customer's Privacy Notices to make sure they are up to date and provide website visitors with the information they need about how data is collected and managed.
