    Unfortunately, fraud is common on the web these days, it's not a matter if but when. So awareness is the key,  which will prepare an individual or an organizatoion for any event or an incident. I encourage the reader to share a useful link to do their part in this security awareness month.

    As October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month so I will also contribute a minute to help you about online identity theft issues. I suggest you to use Hotspot Shield free VPN to hide your identity online.
