Taking advantage of impending holidays and the fact that we might be taking our eye off the proverbial ball maybe?

2017 already seems to be the year for fake news. Perhaps defined as websites, or social media posts that are an attempt to play on people who do not check sources and who just pass the news on. Many of us are guilty of ‘retweeting’ or ‘liking’ what I would know as the ‘recreational information’… View Article

Compliance and social media

The importance of using social media during Online Customer Due Diligence Hearing news of the Kim Kardashian incident in Paris I have to confess that my first thought was “I wonder if this has some connection to oversharing on social media”?
