In the age of social media and information technology, ensuring one’s privacy and security is vital. We thank Kishan Anwary from Coppell High School in Coppell, Texas for conducting an enlightening workshop on ‘Social Media Usage and Security’ for Spreeha’s employees.
Our employees were taught how to keep their identities on social media safe while also learning how to prevent hacking of email ids. The information gained has helped them understand the importance of limiting the access strangers can have to their personal lives on public networks.
