Triangulation

If you only have 5 minutes:

  • Always be very wary of sharing personal information across different platforms.
  • Be aware that personal information appears in the public domain, e.g. your address from the electoral roll, and may also be used to fool you into thinking communication is genuine.

 

What is… triangulation?

Triangulation is the use of your personal data to infer and find other personal data. It is very simple for hackers to find public data and connect the dots to you. It is one of the reasons it is critical to protect your personal data.
