Knowing the difference between safe and unsafe websites, phishing and a normal email, malware or a safe link, can be difficult to differentiate even for the most experienced security professional. Tweets, blogs, instant messaging, social networking, email, wikis, gaming, and other forms of electronic interaction can be fun, exciting, and innovative, but if used without proper knowledge and protection, these can cause damage to your computer, destroy or expose sensitive data, or even expose your own identity.
