October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month, and this week's theme is Creating a Culture of Cybersecurity at Work. In celebration of the month and this week's theme, we've released an infographic on the security risks inherent to oversharing on social media - particularly for companies and their employees.

While many of the flashier headlines of today may tell of advanced malware and sophisticated attacks, social media remains an unspoken favorite tool for cyber criminals.
